Jonjo Heuerman's Big Football Tag

Jonjo Heuerman's Big Football Tag

Vital Football is proud to get behind this remarkable fund raising event from young Jonjo Heuerman.

My name is Jonjo, I am 10 years old, and you may have seen me on TV. Every year I walk from Wembley Stadium to West Ham United in memory of my Nanny and Bobby Moore, they both died from bowel cancer. I chose this walk route because Bobby played at both stadiums; he was only 51 when he died and my Nanny was 60.

I fundraise for The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK to help save other people and so far I have raised over £90,000 and I have generated over £1 million in awareness for the charity. I have two letters from Buckingham Palace; I speak at lots of events and have spoken twice at The House of Lords. In November I am visiting Downing Street to meet The Prime Minister.

I really need your help........

In February 2013 I am doing something very special to mark the 20th anniversary of Bobby's death. I am organising THE BIG FOOTBALL TAG and I need a tag team for each of the professional clubs in the UK. There will be 10 tag team routes with a number of tag teams in them. Each of the tag teams will take their captains armband to the next nearest club. This will happen right across the UK until the end of 10 tag groups finally reach me at Upton Park. I will take all of the armbands to Wembley to collect the England captain's armband and bring all of them back to Upton Park. My part of the walk is called ROUTE 66 because I will be walking 66 miles (representing 1966) in 6 days (representing Bobby's shirt number). I will finish on the centre circle when West Ham United play Spurs on the 23rd February 2013. The following day is the 20th anniversary of Bobby's death. Every tag team will be GPS tracked so that people around the UK and the world can follow the progress.

I am posting this article to ask your members if they would kindly help me by forming a tag team to represent your club. You can read loads about me on the internet (Google Jonjo Heuerman).

Please visit my website www.fornannyandbobby.com to read more about The Big Football Tag and join up, I cant make it happen without your help.

There are lots of videos about me on YouTube, here is one of them



Thank you for reading my message, I hope you can help.

Jonjo :O)
