TWO QPR supporters are going the extra mile for QPR in the Community Trust in October.
Ben Worley is running the Bournemouth Marathon on Sunday 2nd October, while two weeks later eight-year-old George Sharp takes on the Junior Great South Run.
Both will be going the extra mile for QPR’s Tiger Cubs who, run in partnership with the Downs Syndrome Association, provide children, young people and adults with Down’s syndrome the same opportunities as their able-bodied peers.
Ben – who ran the London Marathon for our Down’s syndrome football team in 2014 – is hoping to raise more money for a cause close to his heart.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” he told www.qpr.co.uk. “I was hoping to represent QPR in the Community Trust in the Prudential Ride London but unfortunately I picked up an injury.
“All the money I raise from the marathon will go to the QPR Tiger Cubs, a team my girlfriend’s brother plays for, and any sponsorship would be greatly appreciated.
“I look forward to proudly wearing the Hoops on the day!”

Meanwhile, also in October eight-year-old George is taking on the challenge of competing in the Junior Great South Run. While doing so, he has kindly chosen to raise money for the QPR Tiger Cubs.
George and his dad John are both Rangers season ticket holders, and George loves seeing the work QPR in the Community Trust do.
"As a QPR season ticket holder, I see and hear about all the good work they do in the local area,” George said. “And I really like all the fantastic fundraising they do for the Tiger Cubs."
George was presented with his running shirt at the R’s recent home match with Preston North End.
