Steve Prescott Logo 2016 181115THE STEVE PRESCOTT FOUNDATION 

The Steve Prescott Foundation is a registered charity and is the legacy of Steve Prescott MBE who passed away in November 2013. Steve played for St Helens, Hull FC, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and was a Great Britain and Ireland international before a knee injury prematurely ended his career.

Steve was diagnosed with a rare abdominal cancer, pseudomyxoma peritonei in 2006 and formed the SPF to raise funds and raise awareness for Try Assist, formerly The Rugby League Benevolent Fund and the Christie Hospital in Manchester. He undertook many physically and mentally exhausting challenges during his illness to raise funds.  Steve had a pioneering multi visceral transplant with the small bowel, pancreas, duodenum and abdominal wall included at the Oxford Transplant Unit and although this eradicated the cancer Steve passed away a few weeks later. The SPF now also supports research into multi visceral transplants. Steve was immensely proud of the GPW Recruitment St Helens 10k. It was Steve’s wish to give the people of St Helens and Rugby League community a vehicle to get fit and healthy. The GPW Recruitment St Helens has certainly fulfilled his wish. We would like to encourage all athletes to raise funds for The Steve Prescott Foundation. A lot of work and effort goes into the organising of this event and we would like your support to continue Steve’s incredible legacy and help those less fortunate than ourselves.

The SPF has raised over £700,000 since its inception in 2007 and it is expected that the million pound milestone will be reached in 2016.  The SPF helps in the organisation of the annual St Helens 10k run and the Taylor Park Challenge.

The inaugural St Helens Triathlon took place in September 2015. It was always Steve’s wish to hold this event and his wish become a reality.  The Triathlon was attended by Claire Place who was diagnosed with pseudomyxoma four years ago and underwent multi-organ transplant surgery in 2015. Claire has benefitted from the lessons learned from Steve’s experimental operation and is now able to eat and drink normally.

In October 2015 a party of 40 will climb Mount Kilimanjaro in 6 days and also play the World’s Highest altitude game of rugby league. No doubt everyone who takes on a challenge for the SPF will be motivated by Steve’s mantra, ‘What the mind believes, the body achieves’.

Steve’s autobiography ‘One in a Million’ was released in the summer of 2014 with his wife Linzi completing the story of his life and describing his incredible courage.

Steve Prescott continues to inspire a generation and the RFL honoured his contribution to rugby league by naming the annual Super League  player of the year award the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award.
