Celtic captain, Scott Brown kicked off the initiative on August 5 with his own take on the ‘Maradona 7’ by completing the ‘Broony 9’.
Star of film and TV, Martin Compston followed this up by attempting to do 9 keepie-uppies while blindfolded and then nominated fellow actors, Gianni Capaldi and Tony Curran, who both took on the challenge in an attempt to beat Martin’s effort.
Former Celts, Stiliyan Petrov, Simon Donnelly and Tom Boyd also joined in on the fun, with both Stiliyan and Simon completing 9km runs, while Tom took on an 81km (9×9) cycle.
Individuals, families and Celtic Supporters’ Clubs throughout the world have taken on a host of wonderful #9IAR challenges and Celtic FC Foundation are extremely grateful for your fantastic support. But there is still plenty of time to get involved and help raise money for a great cause!
