First team staff and players will be out in force to support our annual AFC Wimbledon Minithon and Funday at the training ground this Sunday morning.
Young Dons are welcome to come along and meet first-team players and staff, with Neal Ardley, Neil Cox, Simon Bassey, Jason Moriarty, Stuart Douglas and Alan Reeves joined by Ben Purrington, Terell Thomas, Tom Scott, Anthony Hartigan and James Hanson at the club’s fundraiser.
TV presenter Lucy Alexander, who is best known for her appearances in the BBC's Homes Under the Hammer, will be drawing the winning names in the raffle, which will raise funds for our Academy and Foundation.
As well as staging the annual Minithon at the club's training complex, we are aiming to host a community event for people of all ages that everyone connected with the club can be proud of. There will be a wide range of events staged on the day.
Our Academy and Foundation are combining to put on the activities, including the following:
• 1km Family Fun Run
• Coaching clinics
• Penalty shoot outs
• Meet first-team players
• Food and refreshments
• Face painting
• 5km Minithon
• Club merchandise and raffle
Bring the family along for a fun packed morning!
The event takes places between 10.00 am and 12.30 pm at the following address: KCL Sports Ground, Windsor Ave, New Malden, KT3 5HA.
Optional entry for 1k and all kids activities - £5 for children (U14)
Optional entry for 5k Minithon - £5 U18, £10 Adults
You will also be supporting your club's important activities in the community through the Foundation and helping the Academy's aim to nurture more players for the first-team.
