Dons fans march to Wembley for a great cause

Supporters combine to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK

23 July 2018

AFC Wimbledon supporters were among a group of 400 walkers from clubs in the South East to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK by completing a march to Wembley yesterday.

A total of 30 walkers took part in the leg that stopped off at AFC Wimbledon, before they pounded the streets to the national stadium. Our gallery of pictures above shows Dons fans and supporters from clubs around the South East taking a break at the Cherry Red Records Stadium yesterday, as part of their 26-mile challenge.

Overall, the event has so far raised £125,000 for Prostate Cancer and walkers were presented with medals at Wembley by World Cup hat-trick hero Sir Geoff Hurst and football legend Ray Clemence.

The march to the arch took in 15 clubs, including AFC Wimbledon, before the fabulous finale.

It was a fundraising event with a clear aim. Prostate cancer claims the life of one man every 45 minutes and has now overtaken breast cancer to become the third biggest cancer killer in the UK.
