Who am I?
My name is Ben Dickinson. I am 10 years old from Larne, Northern Ireland. I love football and I support Manchester United and Larne FC. I play football for Greenisland FC 2011s. I am a central defender and can also play right back or wing back for my team.
Back in March 2021, I raised over £7,200 for the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice by running 26 miles in 26 days and had the amazing experience of being surprised by my hero and inspiration Marcus Rashford on Sky Sports News and running the last mile with the first team at Larne Football Club.
It was Marcus’ encouragement that spurred me on to launch my latest challenge – Ben’s Miles for Meals.
