Archie will run between all Premier League stadiums to fundraise for The Brain Charity

Archie Whitfield, a 22-year-old from Thirsk, North Yorkshire, is embarking on a remarkable journey next year to run between all 20 Premier League stadiums in less than a month – to honour his late father while raising funds for The Brain Charity.

Starting from Newcastle’s St James’s Park and ending at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Archie aims to cover around 680 miles, depending on this season’s promotion and relegation.

Inspired by his father’s resilience and love for football, Archie has already raised over £4,000, a year before the marathon fundraiser takes place.

The quest, scheduled from 2025, holds profound significance for Archie, whose father was a devoted Arsenal fan. Dave Whitfield, a former Geography teacher and community leader, tragically passed away due to complications from Cushing’s syndrome.

Archie invites supporters to join him on various legs of his journey, fostering unity and solidarity.

To support Archie’s mission and The Brain Charity, donations can be made through his dedicated fundraising page:

Archie’s determination to turn grief into positive action resonates deeply with his family. He emphasises the importance of The Brain Charity’s work, stating, “We liked the Brain Charity very much; what they do to help people with so many conditions.”
