Throughout November, staff members at Haverfordwest County AFC will be taking part in daily running challenges to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK.
The challenge, which is called Prostate United, sees football clubs from right across the country lace up their running and cycling shoes to take part in the epic challenge for a fantastic cause.
Club staff including manager Tony Pennock, vice-chairman Julian Furne, partnerships manager Wyndham Williams, goalkeeping coach James Devonald, secretary Julie Legrice, physio Triston Jenkins and media officer Tom Pritchard, will be out every day in November to do their bit for the charity.
The challenge was the idea of Stephen Gilpin, Head Physiotherapist at Rotherham United, and Ross Burbeary, Head of Performance at Lincoln City, and its popularity has increased year-on-year since its inception in 2018.
Nicola Tallett, Director of Fundraising and Supporter Engagement at Prostate Cancer UK said: “Prostate United has really captured the imagination over the years, and it’s been fantastic to see the football family coming together again in support of men affected by prostate cancer and their families.
“To run or cycle every day for a month is no mean feat – especially considering the busy schedules of their clubs – so we’re incredibly grateful for the support of the Prostate United team.
“The funds raised by every club and individual involved will be invested into research into better tests and treatments to stop prostate cancer being a killer. We thank the Prostate United team for their wonderful support and wish them all the best for November.”
Haverfordwest County staff will be running between three and five kilometres during the month, and you will be able to keep tabs on their progress by following the club on Twitter.
