Manchester City Win Premier League and Conquer Kilimanjaro in the Same
Both on pitch and off pitch Man City have a winning team, the players
having successfully won the Premiership and their support team having
successfully summited Kilimanjaro.
Staffordshire, UK, July 09, 2012 -- Rachel Moss, MCFC’s Academy Secretary
said “A glass of red wine in match day hospitality, and next thing you
know an idea was born to take on the challenge of climbing Africa’s
highest mountain. Cheryl Cole and Chris Moyles can probably be blamed for
a lot of things, and this is one of them!”
“Having worked closely with Umbro for a number of years, they were keen
to support us on this challenge so we decided to team together to raise
funds for two charities. The first ‘Shoot for the Moon’ is an exciting
new partnership between Manchester City and Sport Relief, helping young
people achieve their goals. The second, Cardiac Risk in the Young
(C.R.Y.), was chosen after two MCFC Academy players were forced to retire
from football at only 15 years of age after discovering they had life
threatening heart conditions”.
James Beaumont, Sports Marketing Player Manager at Umbro added: “Umbro
wanted to take part in this challenge that would help pull in substantial
funds for our chosen charities. The idea to climb Kilimanjaro for charity
has been a big success. It was a huge mental and physical challenge that
saw everyone struggle at times. Reaching the summit and raising over
£12,000 for the charity is a fantastic achievement for the whole of the
team. I would personally like to thank all of our sponsors for their kind
Paul Deakin of Private Kilimanjaro commented “Congratulations to the Man
City and Umbro team. Kilimanjaro is a tough mountain to climb due to the
quick gain in altitude. Even though I am a Liverpool fan I have to
applaud both the football and climbing teams and we are delighted to have
helped the climbers successfully complete their charity challenge.”
