CHARITIES THAT WILL BENEFIT
Several charities will benefit from the Wales v Costa Rica Gary Speed Memorial International on Wednesday 29th February 2012 at Cardiff City Stadium.
List of charities are as follows:
MacMillan (Cancer support charity)
C.A.L.M. (Campaign Against Living Miserably - a charity involved with helping to reduce suicides amongst men under 35)
The Craig Bellamy Foundation (Receiving kit and equipment for Craig's Foundation in Sierra Leone)
The Daisy Garland (A charity involved with lives touched by epilepsy)
Wrexham FC Under 15 Boys Academy (Gary's son, Ed, is a member of this academy)
All the above have been nominated by Gary's family and will receive a financial benefit from the match, other than the Craig Bellamy Foundation who have asked for a donation of playing kit and equipment.
In addition, former Wales international, Matthew Jones, will be completing a half marathon at the stadium and collection funds for the Spinal Injuries Association. He will be competing in full marathons in the future having originally been encouraged to do so by Gary Speed.
