Brazilian footballer raises money for charity

Jun 03, 2020 10:47 IST

Brazilian veteran footballer Fred on Monday started a long and tiring journey from Belo Horizonte to Rio de Janeiro, where on Saturday he will be unveiled by his former club Fluminense as their new signing. Usually, footballers take chartered flights but this 36-year-old will ride a bicycle for 600 km to raise money for charity. The sponsors have pledged to donate 4 food supply packets for every kilometre he rides on this journey for families struggling with food due to the global pandemic. The striker is aiming for almost 150 km a day which will help him finish the journey in 4 days.
