Pools fan Jeff Stelling is walking 10 marathons in 10 days, from Hartlepool United to Wembley, to raise cash a disease which affects one in eight men.

The Sky Sports presenter, who is also honorary president of Pools, is aiming to raise thousands of pounds for Prostate Cancer UK with his Men United March.

He will take on the epic challenge from March 21 to 30, setting off from Victoria Park, the home of his beloved Pools.

He will head south, finishing at Wembley Stadium in London, bringing some friends and well-known faces from the world of football with him.

Day one, March 21: Hartlepool United to Marske, via Middlesbrough FC.

Day two, March 22: York City to Leeds United.

Day three, March 23: Doncaster Rovers to Scunthorpe United.

The walk will kick off each morning at a football ground, and he will walk around 10 hours a day.

To be considered, would-be fundraisers should get in touch with Prostate Cancer UK with brief information about themselves, their motivation for walking, and ideas for fundraising.

One in eight men will get prostate cancer, and one in four if you are black. One man dies every hour from prostate cancer.
