Charlton Fans travel over 43,000 miles and raise £25,000 for CACT

Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) would like to thank all the participants who took part in Race Europe during March.

Charlton teams made up over 25% of the total number of participants across the 14 London clubs taking part.

In total, the 200 participants have covered over 43,000 miles in just one month, by walking, running, cycling and doing a range of other activities to travel around a virtual map of Europe.

As well as encouraging them to get active and bringing people together during lockdown, the event has raised £25,000 for CACT's work with the most vulnerable in our community, including

Jason Morgan MBE, CACT’s Chief Executive, said:

"My thanks to everyone who has taken part and everyone who has donated money. As a charity, the pandemic has affected the level of fundraising and events planned impacting on revenue opportunities, but thankfully with the Charlton family support, this is an amazing amount to raise for CACT."

There’s still time to sponsor the Race Europe teams here or enter the raffle for a signed John Robinson matchworn shirt.
