AFC Wimbledon Take Up the FC Minithon Gauntlet

AFC Wimbledon have accepted the FC "Run, Walk or Crawl" Minithon challenge and are looking to outdo FC United on October 17th. Currently sat at the top of the Conference they pose a threat to our Minithon domination. Merthyr Tydfil are also bringing out the whole of the Welsh valleys in their support and with Rochdale Hornets and Mancunians RL also chasing, FC United, says general manager, Andy Walsh: "It’s a great honour that Wimbledon have taken up the gauntlet but now we will need all our supporters, players and directors to turn out for the event, and make sure we raise more money for our club and charity than the others."

Andy has registered for the Minithon. Have you? You can register now at minithon2010

Margy is leading the way for the 3rd annual FC United Minithon committing himself and his family to getting around the 5k route in Chorlton Meadows on Sunday, October 17th and he says: "Roy Soule and I will be encouraging all the squad to participate as it’s for two great causes, our club and the Frost children’s charity."

Andy says: ’Events like these raising funds for the club are vital stepping stones on the road to Ten Acres Lane. I hope every supporter that is physically able will join Margy walking round the course or will run with the players or just crawl around with the Board. It’s a fun event and vital for club funds as we progress our plans for Ten Acres Lane. I hope all our supporters branches will pitch in, the branches in the South and in Los Angeles and Boston so it will be an excellent day for our clubs and our health."
