Jeff Stelling is coming to Fir Park as part of another epic walking challenge for Prostate Cancer UK.
The Sky Sports presenter and marathon man has already completed 25 walking marathons for the men’s health charity, and will now span another four countries in four days in September 2019.
The Scottish leg of his tour kicks off at Hampden Park on 5 September, making his way to numerous stadiums across Glasgow and Lanarkshire before ending in ML1.
If you want to raise money for the charity, you can join him on the walk by signing up at marchformen.org. What’s more, you can use the code MOTHERWELL10 to get 10% off the £30 entry fee.
Having raised close to £800,000 across 2016 and 2017, he’s aiming to march through the £1m fundraising barrier as he travels here, before heading on to Belfast, Cardiff and London.
Over 26,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer in Scotland, emphasising the need to raise awareness and funds.
“It’s three years since I started this life-saving journey at the gates of my club, Hartlepool United, but there is still so much work to do,” said Jeff.
“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with one man dying every 45 minutes from this disease. That’s unacceptable, and that’s why I’m walking again.
“It’s an indiscriminate disease, affecting men and their loved ones across the UK. I’ve walked alongside many of them and am proud to call some friends. Their reaction and positive outlook despite being dealt the toughest of hands is simply unbelievable. I’m marching for them – and everyone affected – in a bid to fund the research to change the game.”
Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson wears the Prostate Cancer UK pin badge in support the charity at every game.
“It’s going to be great to welcome Jeff and the walkers to Fir Park in September,” said the ‘Well manager,
“I’m sure there will be some tired legs arriving as Motherwell is the final stop, but every walker can be proud of the terrific efforts they’ll have made for Prostate Cancer UK.”
