A member of the Orchid team or Orchid Ambassador can come along and give an awareness raising assembly including ways students can get involved to gain new skills and experiences. As testicular cancer is common in men as young as 15 this is a crucial time to introduce young men to the signs and symptoms of this rare cancer.
If you are at University, why not become one of our Orchid Ambassadors and make some noise about male cancer on campus. You could organise a charity collection, awareness week or a fundraising event at your University. Follow the link to find out how to get involved.
We were proud to have been chosen by three University RAG Teams in 2016/17. Their fundraising throughout the year contributed to the work of Orchid and helped us to save more men’s’ lives. A big thank you to the following University RAG Teams
Are you a RAG Committee with limited funds? Are you interested in looking for a way to put on a large scale fundraiser without the financial risk to your university? Please email the Events Team (details below) and state your interest in putting on your very own Willy Waddle.
Orchid will then:
- Manage the event admin, register participants and send welcome emails and regular newsletter style updates.
- Manage the event logistics.
- Whether you have 10 or 100 willies, we will provide the suits for all of your participants, at no cost to your university.
If you recruit more than 20 willies for your waddle, the Orchid Events Team could also attend the event on the day in order to ensure a smooth running of the event and make sure that no willy is left feeling unwelcome.
The event is a 2k run completed in a inflatable penis costume, to raise awareness and vital funds for penile cancer. For full event details of our Great Willy Waddle please click here
