Introduction

Hi, thanks for visiting One Ball Rally and I hope you enjoy your stay!
I have organised this event in order to raise awareness primarily (if you are male, check your balls right this second for any growths!) about testicular cancer and also to raise a bit of cash for the Association of International Cancer Research, who carry out sterling work to combat this terrible disease.

We now have a full bio page of the One Ball Rally Team which you can now find here http://oneballrallyers.blogspot.com/

Why? Who? What? When?

Christmas! It's a fantastic time of year and personally, I had a brilliant time and I hope you did too.

The New Year has started well (it cannot get any worse than last year!) and we can now focus back on the One Ball Rally and spreading the word far and wide across the world.
Support for OBR is strong as ever but over the festive period, it has taken a back-seat in many people's minds, myself included, and I've had many people asking me what was the event about and how was it going so I thought a 2008 Review was in order.

Why?

My name is Dave Cook, I am 24 and live in Ormskirk, Lancashire. I work for Lancashire Museums in a varied role and really enjoy my work.
Last year, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer about the end of February after the removal of a cyst and also one of my balls, which has been replaced by a prosthetic implant which tingles sometimes like a personal 'Spidey Sense'.
I underwent 9 weeks of Hell, a.k.a Chemotherapy and for all its evils, this treatment surely does the trick.
I now have checks every 3 months to make sure that any tiny bits of cancerous tissue do not start to spread and thankfully, they have been blasted to nothing :-)

Who?

The OBR team is varied and stronger for it. I have a much more detailed bio of the team somewhere so if you are unfortunately reading this in its current form, I apologise and come back tomorrow for some interesting facts about the lads.

In the meantime, there is Ad Bell, Paul Ashton and Martin Pilkington and myself all embarking on a gruelling challenge of wits, determination and probably D-I-Y car repairs as we attempt to finish the One Ball Rally!!

What?

The One Ball Rally is a fantastic journey and will take us through most of Europe to reach our ultimate destination; Istanbul.
If you scroll down the blog you will find a Google Map which highlights the route we will be taking and we aim to kick-off from ORMSKIRK on the 21ST MARCH 2008.
A full itinerary can be found in the calendar below, scroll to March 21st 2008.



So, its a fantastic event, as you already know, and its about ot get a whole lot better! I aim to get regular with my posts, we have lots of behind the scenes work going on as we speak and you will find that January 2008 is the month that One Ball Rally really grows some balls!!
