Kilted to Kick Cancer is where people wear kilts, so when people ask why we are wearing it, we are able to bring up the topic of prostate cancer,” he said. It’s a way of creating awareness for prostate cancer.” According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, it is estimated that 3,500 males will die from prostate cancer this year alone.
