In total, Dan traveled for 10 days, walking over 200 miles, and did an estimated half a million football keepy uppies. He persisted rain or shine and set a new world record when he reached Old Trafford in Manchester on Friday 11 May. He did it to raise money for UNICEF's Keep it Up for Soccer Aid.
Dan Magness had a busy first day! He started early on ITV's Daybreak, visited students at Wembley Primary School, and set off doing football keepy uppies from Wembley Stadium. From there he walked all the way to St. Albans keeping the football in the air. He's Keeping it Up for Soccer Aid!
Day 2 of Dan's Keep it Up for Soccer Aid challenge took him over 26 miles from St. Albans to his home town of Milton Keynes. Dan kept the football in the air for the length of a marathon and is still on track to set the world record!
