LFC boss Brendan Rodgers to run Liverpool half-marathon for charity

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is set to run the Liverpool half-marathon for the club's charity - the LFC foundation.

Brendan will join around 9000 other runners for the event on the 23rd March.

The gaffer said:

"The team and I are looking forward to running and finishing the race together, whilst enjoying the atmosphere and raising funds for our Liverpool FC Foundation.

"The foundation plays such an important role in our communities, creating sporting opportunities that have a big impact on people's lives."

The foundation works on projects worldwide, and at home supports youngsters in developing skills, adults in promoting healthy lifestyles and helps armed service personnel adapt back to civilian life.

Rodgers underwent a health kick from last summer - and was noticeably trimmer come the start of this seasons campaign.

He famously went for a jog on the mean streets of Manchester earlier this season - just hours before the reds took to the pitch at Old Trafford in a League Cup clash against Man Utd.

Back in 2011 before his Liverpool days he also was part of an expedition to Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Marie Curie.
