Soccer Saturday legend Jeff Stelling embarked for Men on Thursday March on His Own 100-mile to Increase awareness and money .
Jeff will take part in four marathons, in several countries, over four days – beginning in Glasgow on Thursday, before finishing in London on Sunday and traveling to Belfast, Cardiff.
Prior ending in Motherwell thursday’s route took Jeff into the grounds of Celtic, Rangers and Hamilton Academical in the national stadium Hampden Park.
Before he began his endeavour, Jeff told Sky Sports News:”We are trying to raise awareness of a disease that kills a man every 45 minutes, every half of a football match. One in eight of us can contract prostate cancer at some stage in our lives, which is a phenomenal figure.
“Men are reluctant to go to their GP about anything and if it’s to do with anything below the waist they are not going anywhere near it. It’s an attitude that change and we have got to try.
“We’ve done 25 marathons in the past to attempt to change this mindset and I think it is working. Folks have been very generous and they have contributed #800,000 within the last few years and we are expecting to get beyond the #1m this year”
On the way, Stelling expects to be joined by a lot of his friends within the world and he put off about the leg with Malky Mackay and David Moyes, together with Charlie Nicholas joining later at Celtic Park.
Nicholas was intended to join at the previous stop, Ibrox, but he wasn’t surprised prevented his former club’s house Celtic’s rivals.
He explained:”Can you really expect him to develop at Ibrox? Chicken Charlie – that is what we call him.
“He is in London and his flight has been delayed so he is hoping to get here as soon as he possibly can. We’re told surprisethat it will most likely be sometime soon after we’ve left Ibrox.”
Stelling will last his 16-club excursion if he visits Cliftonville, Crusaders, Glentoran and Linfield in Northern Ireland.
