CHARLTON UPBEATS DAY IS BACK – 9 MILE CHARITY WALK
Charlton Upbeats Day is back! After raising over £15,000 for the much-loved Upbeats last year, the charity walk is returning in 2016 bigger and better.
Helping raise funds and awareness for the Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) Down’s syndrome project, the day consists of a new and improved 9 mile walk from the CAFC training ground to The Valley, led by Charlton legends and assisted by accredited walking volunteers.
Taking place on April 16th, the day coincides with the Charlton Athletic home fixture against Derby County. The walking groups will set off at 9.00am from Sparrows Lane, before arriving at The Valley 9 miles and 3 and a half hours later. All participants will then have the opportunity to support The Upbeats in a curtain raiser fixture against Derby County’s Down’s syndrome team, before watching Charlton Athletic in their Championship fixture at 3.00pm.
Included for participating:
- 9 mile walk from Sparrows Lane to The Valley
- Charlton legend to lead your walking group
- Charlton Upbeats walking T-shirt
- Arrival pastry and tea or coffee
- 50% off Charlton Athletic vs Derby County ticket*, with all proceeds from these discounted tickets being donated back to The Upbeats
