Increasing exercise opportunities for men living with cancer is so important to us at The Killie Community.

Starting on Tuesday 19th September, we’re working in partnership with Prostate Scotland and the SPFL Trust to bring you Prostate FFIT (Football Fans in Training) at Rugby Park.

We’re honoured to be one of only two football clubs in Scotland selected to provide this exciting new 12 week programme, specifically designed for those living with prostate cancer.

Every Tuesday, from 5.30pm – 6.30pm, men living with prostate cancer will have the opportunity to meet men with similar experiences and improve their fitness.

Prostate FFIT is a collaboration between three organisations passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of people with prostate cancer; Prostate Scotland, the University of Glasgow and the SPFL Trust.

Our programme aims to improve men’s fitness and allows them to enjoy light exercise under the lights at Rugby Park, led by our trained Community Coaches.

Prostate Scotland help to educate, advance and campaign on prostate disease to ensure more men are aware of the disease and they have access to the latest and most appropriate forms of treatment.

Men will also have the chance to build your knowledge of exercise, diet and nutrition over the 12 weeks.

If you or anyone you know would like to join this programme, sign up here.
