We fund research to stop prostate cancer killing men


Myself, Damien Bowyer, Glyn Lewis and other members of Norwich City staff are running or completing other physical challenges in November to raise the awareness of prostate cancer. A close friend of mine suffered from the illness first hand so this charity and challenge means a lot to me. I personally will be running 10k every day in the month of November, Damien will be running 5k every day and Glyn will contribute 3-4 runs per week. We are supporting the story below. Any donations are very much appreciated.....

In November 2018, Stephen Gilpin and Ross Burbeary started a challenge. A challenge that consisted of him and Ross running 10km every day throughout November.

To continue the fundraising in November 2019, the Rotherham United Sport Science and Medical team along with support from West Ham LFC and Coventry City FC performed the same challenge. An amazing effort from the Wolves Sport Science and Medical team saw them emulate the challenge the following month throughout December for Leukaemia Research.

For this year, the 3rd year running, we are doing the same but asking for something extra. We are asking that every team in the Premier League and English Football League show their support by joining in with us. We are aiming to have at least one staff member of every football club to perform a single 10km (or as many they like) in November. This should create some fantastic awareness for a great charity whilst showing unity within football during this difficult time for everyone.

Please post any photos of your run on social media to show your support using the hashtag #prostateunited.

Let's see how many clubs can show their support! Can we get all 72!
