Rochdale’s Head of Youth Chris Beech has challenged his players and staff to raise funds for the ‘Cystic Fibrosis Trust’.
He and his squad will be making there way to the top of the Imperial War Museum at Salford Quays on Sunday 17th July 2011 before descending down a two-hundred metre zip-wire across the Manchester Ship Canal.
In an escapade more befitting John Rambo, Dale’s youth players will be led into action by Beech who is keen to take positives from the drill.
“It will be a great team building exercise for the lads and the staff and it is one that will certainly take us out of our comfort zone,” Beech told the club’s website.
“We have done similar events in the past and everyone seems to enjoy the experience and it is a fantastic way of supporting a great charity,” he said.
However, the purpose of the event is to raise funds and awareness in support of the charity so the former Blackpool, Huddersfield Town and Rochdale midfielder along with his troops have an aim to make a positive impact on the ‘Cystic Fibrosis Trust’.
He added: “We are looking for Rochdale supporters to help us with donations for the event because we are aiming to raise at least £3000 so if any would like to make a donation they can drop one off in an envelope at the club or donate securely through our online shop.”
“If you can get down to Salford Quays to cheer the lads I’m sure they would appreciate it too.”
