The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia has partnered with the West Australian Football Commission to dedicate each of the weekend’s WAFL matches to the Know Your Score Round.

Foundation representatives will be at the games promoting the importance for men to have regular discussions with their GP about the risk of cancer.

State manager Cate Harman outlined the benefit of the round.

‘The partnership with the WAFC is a perfect opportunity for us to spread our message about being proactive about men’s health,’ she said.

Representatives will hand out Know Your Score goal cards at the gates for a $2 donation.

Donation tins will also be circulating to raise funds for prostate cancer research.
