Story

Welcome to our new adventure - Blackburn Rovers have kindly allowed us the use of Ewood Park on the 22nd June 2019 in an attempt to break a World Record for furthest distance travelled pushing a walk behind lawnmower - the current record is 92.7 km / 57.6 miles - all money raised will be donated to The Alzheimer's Society.

The total we are looking to raise is £9200 which is an unusual figure however this equates to just £100 for every League Club in England & Wales - I will be personally contacting each League Club to ask for their support in our challenge to raise money for The Alzheimer's Society.

Football fans around the World are passionate, fun loving as well as generous but competitive - I would like to ask fans from all Clubs to donate just £1 (obviously more if you're in a position to) and leave a message of support along with the team you support - it would be fantastic to see a wide and diverse range of Teams - even from across the World.

Personally my Dad sadly passed away on the 1st Jan 2018 after suffering from Alzheimer's for about 13 years - since the start of 2017 as a family we have raised over £10k for The Alzheimer's Society to help them support people with Alzheimer's as well as to try and find a cure from this cruel disease.

Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever.Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
