65 Mile Fundraising Walk

Monday 25th May 2022

Kick Start FC are thrilled to announce that on Friday the 1st of July they will be embarking on a 65 mile walk in an attempt to raise £1000 for a brand new project.

Over the course of two days a small team of volunteers will be walking around London using 14 football grounds from the Premier League and EFL as checkpoints. This walk will be the biggest Kick Start FC challenge to date. The first day will see the team travel South Of The River walking from AFC Wimbledon and ending at West Ham United. The second day will see the team travel North Of The River from Leyton Orient and ending at the home of football, aka Wembley Stadium.

Follow the Kick Start FC social media pages for updates on the walk and for live coverage on the two days.

"It's an idea that we have been toying with for a while now and we just decided that now is the time to do it, let's go for it. Our aim is to raise £1000 for an exciting new project, but we also hope it helps raise awareness and to show that mental health has no team colours, it doesn't discriminate, it really can impact anyone no matter what football team you support" - Michael Cunningham (Kick Start FC Founder)

The money raised from this walk will be used to fund a brand new Kick Start FC project in the form of a Social Hub. The Kick Start FC Social Hub will operate on a weekly basis and offer people in the local community the opportunity to come along for a beverage and a chat, engage in wellbeing activities and immerse themselves into a safe space for a few hours.
