Don Shanks running for Stan

Don Shanks is running the New York marathon this weekend, to support three causes – Stan Bowles, who is living with Alzheimer’s, The QPR Number 10 Foundation (in support of former players falling on hardship) and the Alzheimer’s Society.

Supporters can donate to any of these three causes via:


Sixty-six year old Don told the official QPR website “The harsh reality is it won’t be long before Stan has to go into full-time care. His family are doing an incredible job for him but despite their best efforts it just won’t be realistic for them to look after him at the family home for much longer.

“Every donation received will make a difference.”

The marathon is taking place on Sunday, November 4. You can follow Don on Twitter via @DonShanksQPR or on the Facebook here.
