My story

[p]Back in 2017 some amazing friends of mine helped me set up a cancer charity and it is an absolute privilege to be able to help Kicking Off Against Cancer raise money that is spent on helping those with cancer by sending them on experiences with their loved ones. Some respite against there day to day battles, where they can just enjoy some fun and laughter with their families.[/p][p]Last year I proposed we undertake a record attempt to play football for 135 hours, a chance to raise some serious money to continue our work. The trustees as ever, accepted the challenge and here we are.[/p][p]Since starting this fund raising, we have subsequently found out that our 135 hours, has already been beaten by a huge 34 hours and so the record as unofficially been set at 168 hours![/p][p]We are not shying away from this and are there for going to break this record by playing for 169 hours!!!! [/p][p]It would be amiss of me to help set something like this up and then not take part and so I have signed up to play in what will be the biggest challenge I have undertaken.[/p][p]36 players will play football for 169 hours, from Sat 14th July to Sun 21st Jul - that is a staggering 7 days and 1 hour or 112 games of football back to back. THE SAME 36 PLAYERS![/p][p]My personal target for this is £1000 and I would be grateful to you all if you could help me smash this total. If you break it down, I am asking for £5.92 for every hour or 9p for every minute we will be playing football, so that KOAC can help more families that are enduring a far harder challenge every single day![/p][p]In the time we are in the dome, over 6000 more people will be diagnosed with cancer, please if you can, donate to this great challenge and very worthy cause, so we can help as many of them as possible.[/p]
