  • Paul Godbold

    Paul Godbold

    Phew, 10 half marathons in 10 weeks. There’s a challenge for you. Supported throughout by his mother, 'The Trainer', Paul has produced weekly videos following each run, and has raised a massive £5,604.54. Just as importantly, he’s inspired 11 friends to find out more about prostate cancer and speak to their doctors. Thanks to Paul and to all his family and friends who have helped him through this incredible effort. Now have a breather, Paul.

    11 of my friends are going to speak to their doctor about prostate cancer.

  • Pete Broad

    A big danke to Pete Broad who completed the Berlin Marathon in September 2012 along with his brother Ric. Pete put in an incredible amount of determination to complete the 26.2-mile route, and got huge amounts of support from his family who cheered him along with more gusto than you’ll find at a beer festival. Men United congratulates Pete on his amazing achievement and thanks him for all the leg work he put into raising a fantastic £2,324.80 for Prostate Cancer UK.

  • Mike Reeves

    Mike Reeve

    Well, let’s hope so, because he’s on a mission to take 10,000 photos around London. We’re sure he’ll get there, as long as he stays focussed...

    He’s a few thousand snaps into his challenge now, so check out his Facebook page, where you can see his pictures and donate to his epic challenge.

    William collected 10,000 pennies (£100) with the help of his family and friends. As well as collecting pennies, William helped bake and ice cakes for cake sales, collected money for Man of Men badges and wrote to Boris Johnson and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to let them know about what men face.

    I want to raise as much money as I can, as I want to help find a cure for Prostate Cancer and stop other families going through what we are going through. For the past two years I have been doing as much as I can to help the charity.

    Nicola with Dad

    Nicola cycled an epic distance of 10,000k in a single year.

    She took part in various organised challenges, even taking on routes alone, and completed the last hundred miles with the man who inspired her to take the 10,000 challenge: her dad.
