The West Australian Football Commission has joined forces with Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia to host the West Australia Football League’s (WAFL) Know Your Score Men’s Health Round this weekend.
 
For the fourth year, the Know Your Score Men’s Health Round initiative will see players from across the state don blue armbands to honour the men in WA who have lost their lives to prostate cancer.
 
All four WAFL games held this Saturday will aim to raise awareness of prostate cancer and encourage men to be more proactive about their health by talking to their doctor.

Before bounce down at the Subiaco v East Fremantle televised game (7Mate) at Leederville Oval 300 balloons will be released to honour the 300 men in WA who lose their lives to prostate cancer each year.

At the televised game umpires will wear blue ‘Know your Score’ shirts donated by WAFL broadcast sponsor Kennards Hire. 
 
Know Your Score Ambassador Glen Jakovich said it is crucial men keep on top of their health.
 
“Keeping on top of your health should be a priority for everyone and it is an invaluable investment for your future,” Jakovich said.
