About the Event
Help us break the BALLSIEST World Record ever! Join us on International Men's Day (Saturday 19th November) and help us break the Guinness World Record for the 'Largest Simultaneous Self Check for Testicular Cancer!' 👏🍒
- We need 250 men to help us break the record (it currently stands at 236)
- There is no nudity (you will be checking yourself with your hands down your trousers)
- All attendees will receive a certificate as a thank you for participating
- You will be part of history, and most importantly, you will help us save lives!
Testicular Cancer affects 2,400 men a year in the UK, but is 98% curable if found early. Our aim is to raise awareness of this awful disease that affects so many young men, reduce the embarrassment and stigma of talking about our privates, and to save lives through educating men how to check themselves once a month for the signs & symptoms of testicular cancer 👏
The attempt will be lead by trained medical professionals from our partners at the Oaks Hospital Urology Department, and is being organised by our very own Darren Couchman, Community Engagement Manager and 21-year testicular cancer survivor (who set the original record in 2010!)
- Due to the nature of the venue (a nightclub), we're afriad that this event is for over-18's only.
- Please note that due to the requirements of evidence to break the world record, this event will be filmed from beginning to completion - from the moment you enter the venue, to the moment you leave, you will be recorded.
- Please only register is you can commit 100% to attending this event - capacity is limited, and although unforseen drop-outs are to be expected - but we need to ensure we have enough numbers to break the world record!
