Uni footballers running 10k to raise money for cancer charity
Lap it up
Glasgow’s men’s football team are running 10k this week to raise money for the Lymphoma association.
The Glasgow Winter Warmer 10k will take place on 15th November, with most of the A team and various other members of the club taking part.
The club try and do a bit of charity fundraising every year, and this year they chose this charity, because a club member’s sister has recently been diagnosed with the disease.
The Tab caught up with two members of the A Team squad, Joe Cameron, and Keiran Everden, to talk about how fundraising and training is going.
Talking about fitness for the run, Keiran said: “I think just training twice a week and playing matches twice a week helps us quite a lot with our fitness, as you have to have a very good base level of fitness for this.”
Joe said: “Most of the first team are running. It’s not just for the first team though, but for the whole club, so amazingly, lots of the boys have signed up. People from every team in football are representing this week, so it’s a great team effort, for an excellent cause.”
The boys have raised £460 so far and expect to pass their £500 target before the end of the week. If you wish to donate to this fantastic cause, here is the link.
