Back in 2016 Kicking off Against Cancer was formed on the back of a successful Guinness World Record Attempt for the Longest marathon playing indoor Soccer. Two teams battled it out for 36 hours non-stop under the KOAC name.

This led to us founding the charity and for over a year now we have been helping create memories for those battling cancer and providing some respite from treatment and the daily fight they endure.

The day to day battle with cancer is both physically and mentally draining and we think that anyone going through this fight deserves to be treated like a hero. We are blown away by the people we meet, and their amazing stories of bravery and courage that we have witnessed first hand. Our aim is to ensure that these people get some time away from their fight to smile, laugh, spend time with their families and at least have some escape from this cruel illness.

The fundraising we rely on to do this comes in many forms. We are incredibly grateful for all the support we receive and have been very fortunate to have an ever growing band of loyal supporters and fundraising heroes aiding us with the work we are doing.

There are now more charities in the UK than ever before, all fundraising for amazing causes that are all just as important as each other. This is a fantastic position to be in, as it means more people from all walks of life are getting help and support from these charities. However, it means we have to go above and beyond to prove that we are the right charity for you to get behind.

To this end, we wanted to undertake something that we believe can capture the imagination of our supporters, to raise important funds to help more and more people. Therefore, we are going to attempt another World Record and in keeping with our name and our roots, this one is also football related. It is also our toughest and biggest fundraising event we have done so far.

We are attempting to break the world record for the Longest 11-a-side football match by playing the equivalent of 90 games of football back to back. That works out at an incredible 135 hours of football!

We have rounded up 36 incredible individuals that will enter The House of Sport Dome, Leckwith at 8pm on Sunday 14th July and will play football until 11am on Saturday 20th July – an incredible 5 days and 15 hours later! The logistics of getting the players on the pitch alone will require a lot of planning and this is just the beginning.

We will not be able to do this all by ourselves and to this end, hope that you may be able to help? We have put together some sponsorship packages for the event that we would like to present to you in the hope that you can become one of our event partners. Of course we are more than happy to discuss this with you in person should you require more information and feel that there are packages that can suit all budgets even if it is not shown here. To take up one of our packages or for more information please email us: sponsorship@kickingoffagainstcancer.org or contact us by clicking here. We thank you for your valuable time in looking at our event and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Many thanks, The Kicking Off Against Cancer Team.
