Army FA Support 92plus1

Help The Heroes charity is due to benefit from an exciting fundraiser planned for October involving former and serving members of the Armed Forces...

From Wembley to Wembley in 92 Hours!
11th October to 15th October 2014

The mission is to leave Wembley Stadium on Friday 11th October after the England World Cup qualifier versus Montenegro and visit all 92 Premier League and Football League clubs in the 2013/14 Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two competitions.

The goal is to return to Wembley in time for the kick off of the England game on Tuesday 15th October versus Poland and this will involve a 2,500 mile round trip.

A car of four people will leave Wembley and drive 2-3 hour shifts each to each ground, photograph themselves at the stadium and then drive to the next one. This will be mentally challenging and the vehicle will only stop for refuelling, rest breaks and at each stop. The challenge is undertaken at each drivers own risk and all drivers currently hold a valid UK driving licence.

The charity chosen to support with this challenge is the Help For Heroes charity who are fully supportive of the initiative.

The team wish to raise awareness and funds for Help for Heroes by sponsorship from people and businesses wanting to support the challenge and help the charity. The reason is that they feel very passionate about helping the charity as there are ex forces personnel in our team and they know this challenge will help those affected by their service to our armed forces.

The British Forces Broadcasting Services (BFBS) also support the fund raiser.
