If you're a football fan you'll definitely be aware of Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday presenter Jeff Stelling. Best known for his on air whit and wacky presenting he has won the hearts of supporters across the country!
However this March he will be helping to support Prostate Cancer UK by taking part in the Men United March, which consists of 10 walking marathons in 10 days.
Overall Stelling will check in at 31 football clubs across the country with Walsall being on the list for the sixth day of the campaign alongside Midlands neighbours, Wolves, Aston Villa, West Brom and Birmingham.
Jeff stated "I deal in statistics – but the ones we are dealing with here are shocking. One man dies every hour from this disease, that's six in the course of Soccer Saturday every week. One in eight men will get prostate cancer, and for black men the odds are even worse at one in four"
Jeff will not be doing this march alone however as he will be joined by friend and Hartlepool chief executive Russ Green and many other friends, colleagues and families who have been affected by prostate cancer in their life.
