Exeter City Football Club, Exeter City Academy & Exeter City Community Trust will come together in February to run the Half Marathon at the City's Quayside and raise funds for both Exeter City Community Trust & Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.
We are running in support of the work undertaken by the Community Trust in aiding people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds within the City and the Darby Rimmer Motor Neurone Disease Foundation.
With both former Grecian Marcus Stewart and Exeter City Community Trust Social Inclusion Officer Pete Eveleigh battling the disease, these are two causes close to the heart of the Exeter City family.
The club have already dedicated Boxing Day's match with Portsmouth to the cause, with over £1,800 kindly donated by supporters of both clubs on the day, with further donations added online for the Darby Rimmer Foundation and Motor Neurone Disease Foundation.
Members of staff from the academy and Community Trust will be joined by; Manager Gary Caldwell, Assistant Manager Kevin Nicholson, U23 and Lead PDP Coach David Perkins, S&C Coach Max Kane, Sports Therapist Sam Alfieri and Head of Performance Jon Pitts on Sunday, 12 February.
Gary Caldwell said: "This is a fantastic cause that we are doing this for. And it is good for us as a staff as well in terms of cameraderie with the training. It's important that we all do this together, and hopefully we can raise a lot of money!"
