HUM­BLED TO BE A NOM­I­NEE

The Football League Paper - - JEFF STELLING -

MY LEGS have re­cov­ered from walk­ing 15 marathons in 15 days in the sum­mer for Prostate Can­cer UK. The March for Men started out at St James Park in Ex­eter and fin­ished at St James’ Park in New­cas­tle, stop­ping at some won­der­ful clubs from all lev­els along the way – even Dar­ling­ton! The trek has led to me be­ing nom­i­nated for Celebrity Fundraiser of the Year in the Just­giv­ing Awards. Hand on heart, it’s nice to be nom­i­nated, but it re­ally doesn’t mat­ter if you win it or not. That was not why we set off to do what we did. What mat­ters is all the guys who got in­volved made an ef­fort to do some­thing to ben­e­fit other peo­ple. That’s a re­ward in it­self. It was a team ef­fort. Yes, I walked the thing but by far the main part of fund-rais­ing was done by all the walk­ers. I was just the front man. So many peo­ple put in so much work, from the char­ity it­self through to the peo­ple who are af­fected by prostate can­cer.
