Dons fan Kevin’s epic Marathon challenge

Read about a Wimbledon supporter's amazing story

11 June 2018

AFC Wimbledon supporter Kevin Webber has today started a unique charity challenge of seven marathons in seven days for Prostate Cancer UK.

Ultra-marathon junkie, Kevin, from Epsom, aims to raise over £50,000 in the north of the country, by completing it with over 100 colleagues from RBS.

The gruelling event starts in Newcastle today, before moving onto marathon stages at Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester, Greater Manchester, Preston, and Liverpool.

Kevin, who is a Season Ticket holder at AFC Wimbledon, was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer back in 2014, but he has spent the last four years raising over £200,000 for this vital cause.

Although his latest challenge is a tough one, Kevin is used to pushing himself to the limit. Last year he took part in 12 days of Sky Sports' presenter Jeff Stelling's epic 15 marathons in 15 days and ran his own marathons for the other three. The father-of-three has even tackled some of the world's most gruelling ultra-marathons, including the trans-Saharan, Marathon de Sables three times, and the Likeys 6633 Arctic Ultra.

Kevin's efforts have helped to raise awareness of prostate cancer, which is now the most common cancer in men. One man will die from prostate cancer every 45 minutes in the UK. That's over 11,800 men a year.

All at AFC Wimbledon wish Kevin good luck in completing his tough challenge.
