City support Prostate Cancer UK with Jeff Stelling’s March for Men
This Saturday, Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling will visit CCS during another epic walking challenge for Prostate Cancer UK – spanning four countries in four days!
Jeff is calling on the help of the public to support him on his quest to help beat prostate cancer – a disease killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK.
After completing 25 walking marathons in 2016 and 2017, raising close to £800,000, Jeff is back for 2019 and with the help of aims to march through the £1m fundraising barrier as he travels to Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and London from 5-8 September.
His route will see him walk from Newport County to the Welsh capital, where he will meet some familiar footballing faces on the Cardiff City Stadium turf, before continuing on foot to the Principality Stadium.

Jeff, who wears the Prostate Cancer UK Man of Men pin badge, together with the panellists, every week on Soccer Saturday, said:
'Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with one man dying every 45 minutes from this disease. That’s unacceptable, and that’s why I’m walking again.”
“It’s an indiscriminate disease, affecting men and their loved ones across the UK. I’ve walked alongside many of them and am proud to call some my friends. Their reaction and positive outlook despite being dealt the toughest of hands is simply unbelievable. I’m marching for them – and everyone affected – in a bid to fund the research to change the game.
“I live in England and work in London but the wonderful work of Prostate Cancer UK stretches into Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, so I will be pounding the pavements in four historic cities – and it wouldn’t be a football march without popping in on some iconic football clubs along the way.”
