The Marathon March 2018, powered by Utilita Energy, saw more than 150 Palace fans join legends Andy Johnson, Mark Bright, Neil Shipperley, Andy Gray and Sasa Curcic, as well as Palace chairman Steve Parish, walk 26.2 miles from Selhurst Park to Trafalgar Square. More than £100,000 was raised to support our work with young south Londoners!

See how the day unfolded:

Speaking after walking the Marathon March in 2018, Palace chairman Steve Parish said: It was fantastic and reminds you what a football club is all about for so many people.

“The Foundation is growing and doing so much good work in our community, reaching out to so many young people and making a difference to their lives.”

Fiona and Patrick McNamara, who walked in both 2017 and 2018, said after the 2018 event: “Just a brilliant day spent with Palace fans who have the same goal, raising awareness for a great cause like Palace for Life Foundation. For the Chairman [Steve Parish] to take part was such a great boost to the fans. Andy Johnson is a great Ambassador to the club too.”

Rebecca Hurst walked in 2017 and then volunteered at the event in 2018: “I signed up as I enjoy challenges and I really wanted to help Palace for Life to help raise the children of south London.

“I really enjoyed the day meeting lots of other like-minded people who have the same passion for helping others and also supporting Crystal Palace. It was great to walk and chat with Andy during the walk and to find out more about him. The event was extremely well organised by Palace for Life Foundation and having the ladies team hand out medals at the end was a great touch.

“The walk showed that as supporters we are not just watching football we are a family that stick together to help each other and of those in our community.”
