In 2011, Prostate Cancer UK trustee Professor Roger Kirby led a
team of seven doctors and two patients along a challenging route
through the Himalayas. The trek was in memory of Richard
Macaire, an avid supporter who sadly lost his battle with prostate
cancer in 2010.
On 9 February 2012 Prostate Action (now merged with Prostate
Cancer UK) was presented with a cheque for the amazing sum of
£442,546, raised by everyone who took part. The presentation was
held at the offices of Working Title Films in Marylebone, and was
followed by the screening of a short film of the trek, made by
Michael Ellard, which can be viewed above.
We are incredibly grateful to everyone involved in organising,
running and taking part in such a fitting tribute to Richard
Macaire, a man who helped champion the fight against prostate
disease throughout his lifetime.
