In this guest post for BJUI, I look at both sides of the pond raising awareness for men’s health this summer. In the U.S., Dr. Brahmbhatt and Dr. Parrekattil drive a TESLA across the country, and in Europe, a Banger 3K rally supports Prostate Cancer UK. Join in!
Gentlemen, Start Your Engines
The Drive for Men’s Health
For the second straight year, American urologists Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt and Dr. Sijo Parekattil have organized the Drive for Men’s Health. This year, on Thursday, June 11th, the Drive for Men’s Health will again start in Clermont, Florida, head to Manhattan, and then go West to Los Angeles, California. Over the course of the 6,000 mile drive, the urology duo will host live webcasts on a variety of men’s health topics, with over 200 speakers from around the world.
The Banger 3K Rally for Prostate Cancer
Putting the Petal to the Metal
In July, amateur hockey player Adam Clark (Clarky) and his friend Robert Lamden (Lambo) will strap themselves into a 28-year-old Toyota MR2 Mk1 for the 2015 Banger Rally Challenge for a 3,000 miles across France, Switzerland, Monaco, Italy, and thru the Alps. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and money for Prostate Cancer UK, the largest men’s health charity in the UK, dedicated to helping men survive prostate cancer, and enjoy a better quality of life.
Driving the Message Home
By donating and supporting the boys, you will not only help shift men’s health into high gear, but also help keep our patients and our friends out of the penalty box and firing on all cylinders.
