In September 2019 I completed my trilogy of marathon marches for Prostate Cancer UK raising money to help beat a disease killing 1 man every 45 minutes in the UK.
In 2016 I walked ten marathons in ten days taking my team, Hartlepool United, to Wembley - somewhere they've never been. And in 2017 I went further walking 15 marathons in 15 days from Exeter to Newcastle. So that's over 650 miles marched so far. And this year people joined me in marching to £1,000,000 to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
I walked 26 miles in Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and London visiting 16 football clubs. So 4 marathons, in 4 nations, in 4 days reaching more men and their families with a life saving message too.
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. 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 my friends. Their reaction and positive outlook despite being dealt the toughest of hands is simply unbelievable. I march for them - and everyone affected - in a bid to fund the research to change the game.
