Know the Score and Help Tackle Bowel Cancer
Tuesday, April 03, 2012
Bowel Cancer UK is delighted to support the 'Know the Score'
initiative this April to tie in with Bowel Cancer Awareness
'Know the Score' will see some of England's top names in
football from past and present, raising awareness of bowel cancer
over Easter weekend.
Players, managers and match officials in football are
being asked to wear a 'Star of Hope' badge throughout the
weekend to show their support for raising awareness.
The initiative was founded by The Mr Brightside Project, a
charity set up by family and friends in memory of Stephen Johns who
after a short battle against bowel cancer died at the young age of
Current England midfielder James Milner has pledged his support
to the campaign along with World Cup winner Martin Peters, and
women's captain Faye White.
Les Ferdinand MBE is also backing the campaign and says "I am
happy to support the 'Know the Score' campaign and hopefully,
through football, a game that interests and reaches males and
females of all ages, attitudes can be changed and a difference can
be made, which will ultimately save lives."
