Chief Executive of Prostate Cancer UK, Angela Culhane, said: "The blisters may have healed after an incredible 10 days, but I’m delighted to say the legacy of Jeff’s Men United March is still very much alive.
Prostate Cancer UK is the Official Charity Partner of The Football League and 25 clubs were represented along the route, through the heartlands of England.
He continued: “You can’t ignore the football results on my show and you should also not dismiss a disease that kills one man every hour - that’s six in the course of Soccer Saturday every week.”
“There were highs and lows, tears and triumphs but being able to raise an amazing amount of awareness about this disease, not to mention more than £365,000, is incredible.”
Stelling said: “Ignoring prostate cancer won’t beat it, and I was proud to join the fight during the recent Men United March - they were 10 days I will never forget.
