Stadium to host finale of 'March for Men' in aid of Prostate Cancer UK
Fri 11 June 2021, 09:00|Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will welcome popular TV host Jeff Stelling when he marches across the country for Prostate Cancer UK for a fourth time later this summer.
After raising more than £1m walking across the UK in 2016, 2017 and 2019, the long-serving Sky Sports presenter will be taking on four walking marathons in four regions, starting in the North East on 30 August, heading to Yorkshire on the 31st, and marching through Merseyside on 1 September.
The 'March for Men' finishes up in London on 4 September, with a route from Millwall FC to Tottenham Hotspur via Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers, totalling more than 100 miles across the week.
The finale at our stadium will be a poignant occasion following the sad passing of our legendary former goalkeeper Ray Clemence last year after a long battle with prostate cancer - Ray was present when we hosted the finale to the same event in 2019.
Spurs fans can sign up now to take part in the 'March for Men', which aims to fund lifesaving research to improve testing, treatments and care for those affected by the most common cancer in men.
Stelling said: “One in eight men in the UK will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. I deal in stats, but that one still shocks me. This is our Dads, partners, brothers, grandads, uncles and friends.
“That’s why I wear the Prostate Cancer UK 'Man of Men' badge. That’s why we’ve marched across the UK three times, helping raise more than £1m for crucial research to beat prostate cancer. And that’s why I’d love you to join me this summer. As ever, we’ll visit some iconic clubs and I’m hoping a few familiar faces will join me along the way.
“Last year, we lost the great Ray Clemence to prostate cancer. A terrific goalkeeper and a terrific human being.
“I also lost my mate, Lloyd Pinder, to the disease a few months earlier. I met him on the second day of my very first march for Prostate Cancer UK up in Yorkshire. This highlights once more what an indiscriminate disease this is, and it’s for men like Lloyd and Ray, their families and everyone affected by prostate cancer, that we march again.”
