Jeff Stelling embarks on 100-mile walk for Prostate Cancer UK

Soccer Saturday legend Jeff Stelling embarked on his 100-mile March to raise awareness and money .

Jeff will take part in four marathons, in 3 states, over four times – starting on Thursday, prior to ending on Sunday in London and travelling to Belfast, Cardiff.
Prior to ending in Motherwell thursday’s course took Jeff to 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’re attempting to raise awareness of a disease that kills one man every 45 minutes, then each half of a soccer game. One in eight people can contract prostate cancer at some point in our own lives, which is a phenomenal figure.
“Men are hesitant to visit their GP about anything and if it’s to do with anything under the waist they are not going anywhere close to it. It is an attitude that alter and we have got to try.
“We’ve done 25 marathons in the past to attempt to change that attitude and I think it’s working. People have been very generous and they have contributed #800,000 within the last few years and we’re expecting to get past the #1m this year.”
Along the way, Stelling expects to be joined by many of his friends within the footballing globe and he put off about the leg with David Moyes and Malky Mackay, with Charlie Nicholas linking afterwards at Celtic Park.
Nicholas was meant to join up at the previous stop, Ibrox, but Jeff was not surprised he avoided his club’s house Celtic’s rivals.
He explained:”Did you really expect him to become in Ibrox? Chicken Charlie – that’s what we call him.
“He is in London along with his flight has been delayed so he’s attempting to get here as soon as he possibly can. We are told surprisethat it will probably be sometime soon after we’ve left Ibrox.”
If he visits Cliftonville Crusaders, Glentoran and Linfield at Northern Ireland stelling will continue his trip on Friday.
