Charlton v Gillingham

My friend Jim at Gillingham Legends kindly sent me details of the amazing efforts of fellow Gills fan, Justin Foote.
Justin has been a huge supporter of Prostate Cancer UK, a cause close to my heart. I am delighted to share his upcoming fundraisers.

After a successful marathon walk with Sky Sports Presenter Jeff Stelling back in September 2019, I have now signed up to complete the following marathon walks in 2021 supporting Prostate Cancer UK..

Jurassic Coast Challenge (42km) – Starting at Poole Harbour then along the spectacular Jurassic Coast through Lulworth Cove past Durdle Door and all the way to Weymouth – Saturday 22nd May 2021 ✅ 

Kent County Cricket Club- A walk from Rainham Cricket Club (Kent) to the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury when Kent host the Sussex Sharks in the 20 / 20 Vitality Blast (Sunday18th July 2021). ✅

London Stadium Walk (42km) – London Stadium walk from Millwall, to Chelsea to QPR finishing at Tottenham Hotspur with Sky Sports Presenter Jeff Stelling (Saturday 4th September 2021). ✅

Gillingham FC to Charlton Athletic FC (45km) – Starting from the Priestfields Stadium, I will be walking to The Valley home of Charlton Athletic in time for kick off at 7.45pm (29th December 2021).

Easter 50 Challenge- A walk that was planned for Saturday 10th April but unfortunately had to be postponed due to the Government Guidelines. (To be Re-Arranged for Easter 2022)

Thames Path Challenge (50km) – Taking on England’s greatest river, we head upstream from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta (September 2022).

Why I’m doing these walks??

In June 2020, it was thought that I had possible low level Prostate Cancer after a routine Blood & Urine Test at the London Bridge Hospital.

In addition, a very close friend who’s like a dad to me has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer and want to further awareness / essential funds to help beat a disease that cure kills 1 man every 45 minutes in the UK and would really appreciate your support in a bid to fund research to change the game and stop Prostate Cancer being a killer.

Please check my website for more details

Kind Regards

Justin
