Sporting Focus will raise vital funds to help the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK fight bowel cancer. The Fund was set up by Stephanie Moore in 1993 following Bobby's death from bowel cancer. In the UK, 45 people die each day from bowel cancer, yet 80% of cases can be treated if detected early enough. Proceeds from the event will raise awareness of the disease and help fund research into its causes.
