Forest fan to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK

29 January 2019

Nottingham Forest fan Des Oldham will take on a 20-mile run to help raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer UK ahead of the East Midlands derby.

The 38-year-old hopes to raise as much money as possible ahead of the clash between Forest and Derby at The City Ground by completing the run alongside fans of The Reds and The Rams on Saturday 23rd February.

Des will be running the 20-mile journey between Pride Park and The City Ground and will be taking on the challenge for the second time having raised more than £8,000 for Prostate Cancer UK in December 2017 when a 32-strong squad ran the opposite way.

The run will be along public footpaths from Pride Park Stadium to The City Ground, passing through Brian Clough Way, taking in his statues in both cities and mainly run along the A52.

Des said: "We intend to highlight the importance of such a worthwhile charity, with a show of unity from the passionate supporters of both teams.

"Prostate Cancer UK are working to ensure this disease is something men and their loved ones no longer fear, and this run can get fans together to hopefully prevent others from having to go through the journey friends and relatives very close to us have had to suffer."

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and is a disease that kills one man every 45 minutes.
