THE Peel Thunder will host this weekend’s Know Your Score round against Swan Districts.

Know Your Score is a Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) initiative partnering with the West Australian Football Commission to dedicate a round of football this weekend.

The campaign promotes men’s health and raises awareness amongst the football community about prostate cancer - one of the most serious men’s health issues in Australia.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with 20,000 new cases diagnosed nationally each year.

The key message from the Know your Score campaign is ‘speak to your doctor and keep yourself in the game’. This weekend the Peel Thunder Football Club will be hosting their Know Your Score awareness day with local Mandurah prostate ambassador Stephen O’Grady set to take part in the day.

All WAFL league games played on June 14 will raise awareness of prostate cancer and encourage men to be more proactive about their health by talking to their doctor about prostate cancer as well as other major diseases.

PCFA have also enlisted the services of West Coast Eagles legend Glen Jakovich, to be the patron of the Know your Score Round.

“Being a professional athlete, I know the importance of being proactive about your health and wellbeing,” he said.

“I have been touched by cancer in my family, and I want to do everything possible to be here to watch my children grow up.

“Keeping on top of your health should be a priority for everyone and it is an invaluable investment for your future.”

The round was dedicated to this weekend to coincide with Men’s Health Week from June 9-15.
