It’s a marathon, not a sprint as Resolve takes on one-day 72 hole golf challenge for Prostate Cancer UK

Resolve Supporting PCUK

Resolve is answering Prostate Cancer UK’s fundraising call by taking part in The Big Golf Race, the charity’s flagship fundraising golfing challenge.

This year, the leading men’s health charity is urging golfers to find a course, grab their clubs and round up their mates to help save dads, grandads, brothers and friends from a disease killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK, by taking on two, four or even more rounds of golf in a single day.

Resolve is raising money to help fund research to find better tests to save men’s lives by taking on the Marathon, which consists of four rounds and 26 miles of walking in a day.

Since 2020, over 7,500 golfers have conquered The Big Golf Race, raising an incredible £2 million so far, with a clutch of celebrities and the sport’s biggest names backing the challenge.

Prostate Cancer UK ambassador and former Masters champion Danny Willett is one of them, and the 35-year-old hopes to see even more golfers taking on The Big Golf Race in 2023.

He said:

“It’s been fantastic to see how many golfers across the UK have come together to take on The Big Golf Race over the years – and I’m hoping we get even more golfers out on the course this summer, enjoying a day of golf with their mates and raising money for Prostate Cancer UK.

I know more than most how draining a round of golf can be, so for so many players to conquer four rounds in a day goes to show how passionate Prostate Cancer UK supporters are in backing the charity”.
