Vital Walsall Walking For Jonjo Heuerman
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.
All the GPS trackers are named after our 1966 heroes.
Our GPS tracker is called Roger Hunt.
We are delighted to announce that our team at Vital Walsall have agreed to form part of the tag that links Wolves, Walsall and West Bromwich Albion. We shall be taking the signed captains armband from Banks's Stadium to The Hawthorns this Thursday 14th at 10pm.
Anyone wishing to join this amazing cause can do so. Just drop us a message on 07817271581 so we can work out numbers etc.
