6 June 2019

Clinton Morrison is the latest Palace legend to commit to the Palace for Life Marathon March on Saturday 12th October, joining former Eagles Andrew Johnson and Mark Bright for the annual charity walk.

The event, a 26.2 mile walk from Selhurst Park to Trafalgar Square, brings together Palace fans and legends and last year raised over £100,000 to support vulnerable young south Londoners.

Morrison, who recently took part in Palace for Life’s Play with Legends match at Selhurst Park, said: “I’m really excited to take on the Marathon March! Palace has a special place in my heart and I’m looking forward to spending the day with the fans and doing something positive for the community.”

Set to take part in his third Marathon March is Andrew Johnson, who said: “I’m really pleased to confirm that I’ll be back at the Marathon March for a third time this year and going for my hat-trick!

“Having walked alongside Palace fans and some of my former teammates at this event for the past two years, there was no hesitation in my mind about whether I’d return, it’s an amazing day from start to finish.

“The amount of money we’ve raised for Palace for Life Foundation’s work with youngsters in the community is staggering and I hope we can top it this year. I’m calling on as many Palace fans to join me and sign up today.”

Fellow club legend Mark Bright will take on the challenge for the second year running. He said: “The Marathon March was an amazing day out last year and it was a pleasure to walk and talk with so many fans.

“Completing the walk and knowing we’d raised so much money to help youngsters in the community was a wonderful feeling.

“I’m already looking forward to taking part again this year, let’s make it bigger and better.” 

Over 60 Eagles fans have already pledged to take part in the 2019 marathon-length walk, bringing together Palace fans and legends hoping to beat last year’s total of over £100,000 raised for Palace for Life.
