The short route is fully accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs – however due to the nature of the ground, if it has been a wet summer this may be subject to change.

Marching for men to stop prostate cancer being a killer

Having been diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009, Frank is now looking forward to walking his youngest daughter down the aisle

'My motivation to get up and do the Glasgow March for Men is that now I can be part of something that can help change and save men’s lives. I hope others realise the importance of this cause and come and take part.'

Raising awareness through Glasgow's March for Men

Marlene lost her father to prostate cancer only ten weeks after he was diagnosed

'He was a very strong, fit and healthy man and until his diagnosis, we hadn’t noticed any symptoms. He had a bad back which he would regularly get massages for and any other small niggles he had, he put down to his age.'
