raised of £17,500 target by 904 supporters

    Weʼve raised £23,302 to Pay for Chris Wood's physiotherapy by doing a 40 mile walk from The Stadium of Light to the Riverside.

    Funded on Saturday, 16th March 2024

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    In August of this year Chris (a Middlesbrough FC season ticket holder) suffered his second brain haemorrhage causing a major stroke leaving him hospitalised for nearly 3 months.

    He is now back home with his family but has complete weakness to the whole right side of his body. Chris needs specialist neurological rehabilitation, which cannot be provided by the NHS.

    To raise the funds required to provide Chris with this essential support for as long as possible, over 50 of his family and friends, will be walking from Sunderland's Stadium of light to Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium in time for the match between Middlesbrough and Sunderland on 4th February.

    The walking party will unite supporters of these two north-east footballing rivals in a common cause to support Chris in his time of need.

    Chris hopes to join us en-route at Billingham for the final leg of the journey.

    Any help you can provide will incredibly useful and very much appreciated.

    (For more detail of Chris's story and the walk, please contact Christopher Beaney via the JustGiving page by clicking on his name under the main photo)

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
