Chris Kamara is calling on football fans in England & Wales to join him in raising money for Marie Curie this Christmas.
Chris Kamara is appealing to fans this Christmas to join him in raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care – The Official Charity Partner of the English Football League for the 2010/11 Season.
As official ambassador for the partnership, Chris Kamara is asking football fans to make his dreams come true this Christmas – by joining in his ‘Home or Away’ challenge.
Fans have the choice of the ‘home’ challenge – cycling from Lands End to John O’ Groats – or by joining a team of Football League managers and fans trekking up ‘Kamaramanjaro’ on the away leg.
Both challenges take place in June 2011 and registration forms are now available so don’t miss your chance to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sign up for one of the challenges.
Chris Kamara said:
“My perfect Christmas list would include a fan from every club in the country taking up a challenge and joining me to raise money for this fantastic cause.
“Marie Curie Nurses will be working in every footballing community across the country this Christmas, giving terminally ill people the choice of being looked after at home, surrounded by their family and friends. I want to rally as much support as possible from football fans to ensure that Marie Curie can continue to deliver free nursing care to people who want to be looked after at home.”
Chris Kamara has backed the partnership in memory of his late mother, who was cared for by Marie Curie nurses at home before she died. There are many ways fans can make a difference this season and help achieve the fundraising goal of £500,000.
For those that can’t take up a challenge, why not sponsor Chris Kamara or to make a £3 donation to Marie Curie Cancer Care text GOAL and your club name to 70300.
Money raised by fans undertaking the challenges will contribute to their club’s total in the Marie Curie Fundraising League so supporters will be backing both Marie Curie and their club!
