JOIN ME ON MY MARCH FOR MEN THIS JUNE
March 2016 I walked from Victoria Park, the home of my team Hartlepool United, 262 miles to somewhere we’d never been, Wembley, for Prostate Cancer UK.
We were joined along the way by 400 people fund-raising to help stop prostate cancer being a killer. Together, we raised more than £420,000 and we reached thousands, possibly millions, of people across the UK on TV, radio and in the press. It was an amazing and humbling experience.
I thought when I’d finished at Wembley that was me done with marching for men. But I soon realised I can’t leave it there and there is more to be done.
After the agony and ecstasy of the walk last year, particularly the agony, so many people have been in touch with me, people with stories of their fight against prostate cancer. I decided I couldn’t sit on my backside and do nothing about it. So here we are. We are going to try to do 15 marathons in 15 days, 400 miles. My feet are feeling the pain already. But it will be worth it.
On Friday, June 2, I will begin my next Prostate Cancer UK pilgrimage from St James Park, Exeter City, to St James’ Park, Newcastle United in a 15-day, 400-mile March for Men.
I want you and your readers to walk side by side with me. I will be joined once again by my mates from Sky Sports, famous names from football and show business, and hundreds raising money to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
I hope your readers can support me this summer. You can find our more here:
