MIDFIELDER Darren Carter has made a call to arms to the local community to help Solihull Moors smash their ambitious £250,000 goal for this year’s Moors 4’s fundraiser.
Once again in aid of the club’s Solihull Moors Foundation, and buoyed by the success of their 2020 event which accumulated £30,000 for NHS Charities Together amongst others, the Moors are shooting for the stars with their quarter of a million pounds goal.
The endurance event, which is set to take place between Friday, June 25, and Sunday, June 27, again challenges participants to complete four miles of exercise every four hours – for either a 24-hour or 48-hour period.
Be it cycling, running or walking, the challenge can be undertaken in a location of the participants choice to ensure COVID-19 safety.
Having become involved with the Foundation as an ambassador, Carter knows more than most the positive effect that is had on the projects that benefit from the funding.
“Going out to schools and local businesses, seeing the effect that having the support of the Moors has on them,” said the 37-year-old.
“Seeing those same people coming down to cheer us on, it really does create a great sense of community.
“I would encourage people to get involved. The Moors 4’s is so fulfilling, and knowing ultimately that you are not just doing it for the sake of it, you are raising money to help the Solihull community.”
In all, ten projects that range in a variety of causes – benefitting roughly 2,500 people – have been supported to date, with the goal for 2021 aiming to go above and beyond to extend the Foundation’s influence.
