Coach Gill Completes 200km Running Challenge
Monday, 1st Jun 2020 12:58
Town first-team coach Matt Gill successfully completed his fundraising challenge to run 200km during May.
Gill, 39, joined keeper-coach Jimmy Walker’s Football DNA coaching school’s campaign to raise £10,000 for NHS Charities Together and the UN Foundation.
“I’m about to embark on a 200km running challenge for the month of May,” Gill said ahead of the challenge. “I’m trying to help the guys over at Football DNA raise as much money as they possibly can for the NHS.”
Football DNA hosts videos on training drills, sports science, well being and nutrition.
As reported last month, owner and founder Walker, 46, is offering 30 days of free membership during the coronavirus lockdown, followed by an offer of £5 a month with all proceeds going to NHS Charities Together and the UN Foundation. Donations to the two charities can be made via a Just Giving page.
