Larne Football Club are delighted to announce that our Academy and first team players will support Lewis’ 100 Mile Challenge this Friday ahead of our opening Danske Bank Premiership game against Glentoran.
Six-year-old Lewis Rennie has captured the hearts of the local community as he attempts to walk 100 miles over the summer months to raise money for the ‘Big C Foundation’ in memory of his brother Callum who sadly passed away in May.
Having initially set out to raise £250 towards the worthy cause, Lewis has obliterated the total and has now raised close to £9,000 and completed over 90 of the 100 miles.
With many Larne-based sports teams getting involved in the walk, including our 2012 and 2013 girls teams last week, it is now the turn of our 2010 boys side who will be accompanied by some first team players on Friday night.
The walk will begin at Inver Park early on Friday evening, where Lewis will be welcomed by our entire first team squad. The group will then cover a few miles before returning to Inver, where his final steps of the day will be out on to the pitch to the roar of a jam-packed stadium at 7.30pm.
We can’t wait to welcome Lewis and his family to Inver Park on Friday night and would encourage all supporters to get into the stadium early to ensure he gets the hero’s welcome his incredible efforts deserve.
