The Palace for Life Foundation is delighted to announce that Utilita Energy has today become the headline sponsor for the Marathon March taking place on Saturday 7th October.
The Marathon March powered by Utilita, is a 26.2 mile walk from Selhurst Park to central London, via Richmond Park, raising money to support young people across south London. More than 100 Palace fans are taking part in the event, which is being led by Palace legends Andrew Johnson and Andy Gray.
The walk will take in famous London landmarks, such as Big Ben and the London Eye, finishing at Admiralty Arch on Sunday evening. The walkers hope to raise £40,000 for projects to help young south Londoners and Utilita Energy will provide all participants with a specially designed t-shirt
