As most people involved with Exeter City Football Club now know, former player and coach, Marcus Stewart was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) last September.
As part of the raising awareness campaign for MND in Football, Marcus and his wife Louise have been working very hard to raise much needed funds for research into finding a cure for this terrible fatal disease.
One of the events is the #teamstewart254 Cycle Challenge, which is an event taking a small group of riders who are cycling to seven of his former football clubs, in sevem days, covering over 700 miles of cycling. The ride is split into two legs - the first started in Sunderland on 7 October, finishing in Ipswich, visiting Huddersfield Town along the way.
The second leg starts today (26 October) leaving Bristol City's Ashton Gate where the cyclists will be making their way to Exeter for an overnight stop. They will then visit City's St James Park on Friday morning at 08:00 for a welcome and group photographs before their departure. They will then head to Yeovil Town's ground stopping overnight in Wells before finishing at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
The riders intend to present Marcus a specially cycle jersey which has been signed by all of his seven clubs during the Northampton match at Bristol Rovers on Saturday 28 Oct.
Supporters are welcome to join us in seeing the group off from the fan zone at 8am tomorrow (Friday 27 October) or alternatively can sponsor the challenge by heading to their JustGiving page.
