Walk for Jack

20th September 2011

Earlier this month, young Harlequins Rugby League academy player Jack Brennan was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.

Having suffered with numbness in his neck and shoulders for months, which he put down to an injury, 18 year old Jack and his family now have to face up to a fight against a cancer which has spread throughout his body and is inoperable in its present form.

Jack started a course of chemotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital on Thursday the 15th September and the doctors are hoping Chemotherapy will reduce the tumours enough to operate at a later date.

The rugby league community is coming together to try to raise some money for Jack and his family. There will be a sponsored walk on the 1st of October 2011, starting at 9am from the Twickenham Stoop to his amateur club Greenwich Admirals on the other side of London. The aim is to raise as much as possible to make life for him and his family as good as possible.

The route is 19.5 miles, 31.3km or roughly 44950 steps. The average person would do that in 6 hours and 35mins. Starting at 9am at the Twickenham Stoop the aim is to pass through the capital via Richmond, Putney, Chelsea, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Elephant & Castle and then on to New Cross and Kidbrook, finally finishing at Greenwich Admirals home at Well Hall.

The Rugby League public are free to donate and/or to come down and join in the walk. You are requested to wear your Rugby League Jerseys or Chelsea FC shirts to show your support for Jack. For more info on the walk please contact James Massara at jamesm@quinsrl.co.uk.
