Soccer Saturday legend Jeff Stelling embarked on his 100-mile March for Men on Thursday to Increase Money and Awareness .
Jeff will get involved in four marathons, in several states, more than four days – beginning on Thursday in Glasgow, before traveling to Belfast, Cardiff and finishing in London on Sunday.
Thursday’s route took Jeff into the grounds of Rangers, Celtic and Hamilton Academical before finishing in Motherwell.
Before he began his endeavour, Jeff told Sky Sports News:”We’re attempting to increase awareness of a disease that kills one person every 45 minutes, then every half a soccer match. One in eight of us could contract prostate cancer at any stage in our own lives, and it is a marvelous figure.
“Men are reluctant to go to their GP about anything and when it’s to do with something under the waist they’re not going anywhere near it. It’s an attitude that we’ve got to attempt to alter.
“We have done 25 marathons in the past to try and change this mindset and I think it is working. People have been very generous and they’ve given #800,000 within the past couple of years and we are hoping to get beyond the 1m this year”
Along the road, Stelling hopes to be joined by many of his friends over the globe and he set off to the leg by David Moyes and Malky Mackay, with Charlie Nicholas joining later at Celtic Park.
Nicholas was meant to join in the stop, Ibrox, but Jeff wasn’t surprised he prevented his former club’s home the rivals of Celtic.
He said:”Can you expect him to turn up at Ibrox? Chicken Charlie – that is what we call him.
“He’s in London and his flight has been delayed so he is trying to get here as soon as he possibly can. We are told surprisethat it will most likely be sometime soon after we’ve left Ibrox.”
If he visits Cliftonville Crusaders, Glentoran and Linfield in Northern Ireland stelling will last his 16-club trip.
