The fifth Tiger Feet walk takes place on Saturday 22nd February to coincide with the R’s match against Charlton Athletic. Fiona Hodgson forwarded the following details:
‘Following a quartet of resounding success stories over the last four years, QPR in the Community Trust are delighted to confirm details of their latest Tiger Feet walk.
When the R’s take on Charlton Athletic on Saturday 22nd February 2014, an army of Rangers supporters will make the long 13 mile walk from Loftus Road to the Valley, all in aid of the QPR Tiger Cubs, a football team for children and young people with Downs Syndrome.
Run in partnership with the Downs Syndrome Association, the Tiger Cubs project provides children and young people with Downs Syndrome the same opportunities of being part of a team as able bodied peers.
Through football, the project aims to create a multi-tier learning environment that will improve the participants’ overall physical, social and emotional health.
The money raised goes directly to the team to cover their expenses and assisting with future projects.
Trust CEO, Andy Evans, told http://www.qpr.co.uk: “The Tiger Feet walks are a popular event in our yearly calendar, with participants increasing year on year.”
“The Tiger Cubs is an incredible project and one which continues to go from strength to strength.”
“We’ve raised some fantastic money over the last four years with walks to; Selhurst Park, Vicarage Road, White Hart Lane and the Emirates Stadium, and we’re all relishing the opportunity to raise more funds with the trek to Charlton.”
Tiger Feet 5 is the first of a number of events scheduled for this year, as the Trust celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Good luck to all the walkers taking part which will include, Paul Finney and Steve Sayce from the Indy R’s and regular contributor to our website, Gary DeCaires.
Steve says: “It will be a particular challenge for me as I’m not accustomed to regular exercise – no stranger to a fish and chip supper some might say, I am already in training though.”

Good luck to all those taking part.
