The program is free of charge and there is place for 22 men. Results from previous years have been extremely positive, with statistically significant improvements in both physiological and psycho-social outcomes.


This program has been running yearly since 2009 and has received media attention:




We are aiming to complete registrations in the next 10-15 days, so hopefully we can get the message across to as many men as possible in the next few days.
