Matt Rannamets was the founder and organiser of the Snowdon 500 and Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge.
During the past eight years these events have raised over a million pounds for prostate cancer research. Matt was originally diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2004 and was told he had less than 3 years to live. Although his prostate cancer was well advanced, he decided to get his body into the best possible shape and fight the disease. He changed to a low fat diet and cut out dairy products, red meat and sugar completely. He started to exercise more and take better care of his body. Ultimately Matt did not win his battle with cancer. He died on 17th March 2016. It is testament to his courage, resilience and tenacity, as well as advances in prostate cancer treatment, that he lived so much longer than the doctors had thought possible. The Prostate Cancer Research Centre is working hard to ensure that men diagnosed with prostate cancer in the future can live even longer and fuller lives.
