Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA)
Every year 1.3 million men worldwide are diagnosed with prostate cancer. Notably, Australia has one of the highest incidence rates internationally, with 1 in 7 Australian men likely to be diagnosed during their lifetime. Around 20,000 Australian men receive the devastating news that they have prostate cancer each year.
Tyrepower is proud to have been a Major Partner of Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) since 2015 raising vital funds and awareness in the fight against prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is a cause close to the hearts of many in the Tyrepower family, having impacted store-holders, staff and customers. Tyrepower is helping to drive awareness of prostate cancer risk and the support services available through PCFA by sponsoring public-health messages targeting men at risk, along with those who love them.
Creative messages with Supercars, online and also in Tyrepower stores have further extended this awareness message to the community. Together, we’ve helped to create a lasting impact on the experience of prostate cancer for Australian men.
Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) is a broad-based community organisation and the peak national body for prostate cancer in Australia.
