Always A Chance Ride – national publicity

There’s been some media coverage for the opening leg of the Always A Chance 92-Club-Relay ride which look place nine days ago from Sixfields Stadium (Northampton Town FC) to the Ricoh Arena (Coventry City FC).

Phil Letts points to an article in The Sun which mentions that,

“Many people have rallied round and taken part in activities, from baking cup cakes to skydiving, to raise money for the cause. The Duston School in Northampton, where Peter (Peter Kouzaris, father of James) teaches history, has raised more than £5,000 and a team recently started a 12-week relay event, which kicked off last week at Northampton Town football ground.

The 92 Club Relay event will see friends, family, organisations and charities run, cycle or rollerblade in a relay to all 92 football league grounds across the county. Peter hopes to run the penultimate leg from Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium to Manchester United’s Old Trafford ground, as both he and James were avid United fans.

The event will finish just after the first anniversary of the boys’ death at the end of April, back at Northampton Town’s Sixfields Stadium.

Peter explained: ‘James would have been running or cycling every leg just like his friends will be doing. He was full of energy and life. We even engraved ‘loved life’ on a bench dedicated to him at Pitsford Reservoir, close to where we live.'”
