Know Your Score WAFL Round
Supporting Men’s Health Week
June 25th 2016
Know Your Score has a simple message for Australian men:
Be proactive about your health and know your general ‘score’. Talk to your doctor about determining your individual risk of developing heart disease, lung cancer, stroke and prostate cancer. *
Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men. More men now die of prostate cancer than women die of breast cancer.
The West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) partners with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) again to dedicate a round of WAFL games to Know Your Score as a part of Men’s Health Week, 13 – 19 June 2016.
Know Your Score Patron - Glen Jakovich
‘Being a professional athlete, I know the importance of being proactive about your health and wellbeing. 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.’
Know Your Score is also supported by WA Amateurs, Country, Juniors and Women's Leagues. Local clubs may support the campaign still by holding their own Know Your Score event.
Set up your own Club fundraising page and be in the running to win a special club event with Glen Jakovich. Open until finals in September.
Help us raise $50,000 to provide essential support for men and their families in WA dealing with prostate cancer

* PCFA recommends men over the age of 50, or 40 if they have a family history of prostate cancer, should talk to their doctor about being tested for prostate cancer as part of their annual health check.
PCFA also recommends men should make an individual informed decision about testing based on discussion with their doctors.
