To keep active during the lockdown and help relieve some of the boredom from not playing football, Tupsley Girls Under-12 Pumas set themselves a challenge to virtually tour all of the grounds of the clubs playing in the Barclays FA WSL.
This would mean a total of 647 miles and whenever a player from team goes for a walk, run or cycle ride, their mileage will be taken off the total.
The challenge started on 24th January and - in the words of the club - "collectively smashed it" and reached their target well within the six weeks they had allotted. They then took the decision to extend the challenge to take in all of the FA Women's Championship clubs for a further 789 miles, taking the total distance to a huge 1,434 miles.
There is also a serious side to Tupsley's challenge as they are raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young, in memory of local boy Kieran Joyce who tragically died aged 15 in September 2019. The money raised will help fund vital screening which can identify cardiac risk. For every £5,000 the Charity raises, a screening team can come to Hereford and test 100 young adults.
The players have also been boosted by video messages of encouragement from the WSL and Championship clubs.
We know current times are difficult for everyone but any gift will be gratefully appreciated and the charity will be so thankful. The fundraiser will be closing this coming Sunday (7th March) and if you wish to make a donation, please visit the Facebook page set up by the club at: www.facebook.com/donate/865412767606267/?fundraiser_source=external_url
