On 5th June 2011 Doncaster Rovers players Mark Wilson, James Coppinger and James O’Connor; Sports Scientist Ross Burbeary, Performance Analyst Paul Fernie; Community Participation Manager Liam Scully; Rovers Media Manager Steve Uttley; Managing Director of Moirae Ltd David Plant; Director of Ideal Financial Management Brian Butcher; and Paul Mayfield, who is Secretary of the Retford branch of the Doncaster Rovers Supporters’ Club (and legendary biscuitman) are taking a Challenge to the limit, in fact, the sky is the limit!
This intrepid bunch of football adventurers are going to be scaling the Andes to the Inca Trail, at high altitudes of over 15,000ft, as they will walk over 62 miles of rugged terrain on the roof of South America. Altitude sickness is ever present at heights of 15,000 feet, so trekking over 62 miles in six days will be no piece of cake!
Mark Wilson: “We are doing this challenging trek to raise awareness of the NSPCC and Childline, helping to raise funds to allow them to run this vital service. I have wanted to do something like this for a few years, as it’s close to my heart, especially with all the high profile child abuse cases that have been in the news. I wanted to do something to help prevent and put a stop to child abuse, so this is where the idea came from."
