WALK FOR POUNDS ENTRY DEADLINE ON SATURDAY

4 March 2015

Join Lillis & Booth on the event

Town fans still have the opportunity to sign up for the annual ‘Walk for Pounds’ event, sponsored by club partner Thornhill Dental Surgery!

The walk is in aid of the 'Keep It Up' campaign, which has raised over £1 million to be split between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town Academy since its inception in 2009.

Town fans can still sign up for the walk this week, with forms being accepted at the Ticket Office up to and including Saturday's Sky Bet Championship Yorkshire derby at home to Rotherham United. 

Supporters that do sign up will be walking alongside Town legends Andy Booth and Mark Lillis; the latter being the latest addition to the walk this week!

The 19 mile walk will set off from Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s airbase at Nostell Air Support Unit in Wakefield to the John Smith’s Stadium in time for the home game against Fulham on Saturday 21 March 2015. 
 
Entrants will also take part in a lap of honour on arrival at the Stadium prior to kick-off!
  
This will be the Club’s fourth Walk for Pounds event in aid of the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign, with the previous three events raising an amazing £60,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and HTAFC Academy.
 
Funds raised by the walkers will go towards maintaining the YAA’s two lifesaving helicopters as well as assisting the HTAFC Academy.
 
The event entry fee is £15 per person which includes coach transport from PPG Canalside to Nostell Priory to begin the walk kindly provided by Stotts Coaches, breakfast pre-walk, a snack and refreshment as well as an ‘I completed the Walk’ t-shirt.
 
The minimum age to take part in the Walk is 13 and participants aged 13-15 must be supervised by an adult aged 18+.
