DDFC x A&K Football Marathon
12 hour football marathon on the 22nd June 2018. All funds raised will go to support Alive & Kickings charity initiatives in Sub-Saharan Africa .
Daryl’s Dragons FC and Alive & Kicking invite members of the DDFC community to play their role in a 12-hour football marathon!
participants will take to the field to test their stamina, resilience and, of course, their football skills.
We are teaming up with our charity partners Alive & Kicking to provide a fun family day of football and fundraising.
Every minute played, every ball kicked and every goal scored will help Alive and Kicking provide vital health education and access to sport for thousands of young people across sub-Saharan Africa.
The Family Football Marathon will take place on Saturday June 22nd in Regent’s Park between 8.00am and 8.00pm. All age groups, including parents, are welcome to participate across the day via 2-4 hour slots as we aim to score over 500 goals.
Entry is free with participants asked to fundraise for their efforts. Alive and Kicking will provide all of the details you need including access to an online fundraising platform that you can share across your network. Our aim is to raise over £15,000 which will be used to support the growth of each African centre, to strengthen the delivery of the mental health education programme and to ensure thousands of children are given access to a durable A+K football.
We would love to see you there so please fill in the below form to sign up (remember parents can play to!) and find out about the impact you will make.
