Cure Leukaemia Fundraiser On Sunday

A group of Wolves supporters are braving the elements and taking part in a Wolf Run in aid of Cure Leukaemia on Sunday.

After Carl Ikeme’s diagnosis last year, Cure Leukaemia has become a charity close to Wolves hearts, in support of the goalkeeper and others battling blood cancer. 

Cure Leukaemia helps blood cancer patients to access pioneering drug and transplant treatments by funding a network of specialist research nurses across the UK.

Kevin Thelwell, Sporting Director, said: “Ever since the news about Carl broke the club has given their full backing to him and Cure Leukaemia, and the Wolf Run is another show of support.

“I’m delighted the staff are wanting to play their part and the generous donations given so far have been much appreciated, with a large amount of money already raised.

“It’s been brilliant to see the support of the football family, with agents, directors and players giving generously and raising the awareness of social media.  

“Carl is often tired but is keeping positive. Hopefully, once his treatment is complete he can recover fully and return with a clean bill of health.”

More than £5,000 has now been raised by the Wolves staff and donations, which would be much appreciated, can be made via this link.
