Charlton are joining The Football League London to Amsterdam Challenge in support of Prostate Cancer UK. Fans, players and club officials from across The Football League will take to the saddle for a unique two day “Total Football” themed, 155 mile challenge for the 250,000 men living with prostate cancer across the UK.
The ride will see fans pedal from capital to capital, raising money for prostate cancer. Kicking off on Friday 14 June, the route will pass through the picturesque countryside of rural England, before crossing The Channel at Harwich and onto the flat landscape of Dutch Zeeland.
Former England, Watford and AC Milan Striker, Luther Blissett, has already signed up, and other footballing legends are expected to follow. Luther told us: “Rivalry between clubs can be fierce, and although this isn’t meant to be a race, I am sure there’ll be a sprint to reach the finish line, but we’ll definitely be all on the same team when it comes to raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer.”
Addicks fans can find more details and sign up at www.prostatecanceruk.org/charlton to represent the club for the London to Amsterdam Challenge.
