One hundred children from Stockport will walk ten laps of Old Trafford stadium this month to raise money for those that are less fortunate.

On Sunday 27th February, the budding football players from Bramhall North 75 Junior Football Club will complete the 5k distance having been inspired by Marcus Rashford’s charity work.

Money raised will be donated 50/50 to Bramhall North 75 JFC to purchase defibrillators and the Manchester United Foundation to support the charity’s work with young people in the local community.

The ‘10 X TEN’ challenge has been so named in recognition of Rashford’s shirt number and the ten laps of the world renowned stadium they will be completing.

Supported by Manchester United Football Club and organised by Bramhall North 75 JFC alongside the Manchester United Foundation, the event has so far raised £3,500 of its £10,000 target with contributions collected via Just Giving: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/bramhallnorth75juniorfc

Darren Scott, Under 13 Team Manager and Committee Member at Bramhall North 75 Junior Football Club, commented: “This event is a brilliant way for our players to give something back to both their club and an invaluable charity which means a lot to them.

“The 10 x TEN initiative was created to provide grassroots football clubs like ours with a means of raising funds to ensure their survival – while also contributing to valuable local causes at the same time.

“We hope this event on 27th February is the first of many as we seek to enlist other grassroots clubs and stadiums to join our cause in the months and years to come.”
