Since kicking off our mission has been clear. We want to share Dylan’s inspiring story with as many people as possible and we were lucky enough to begin our work on February 28, 2015 at Upton Park with the support of Dylan’s former club, West Ham United FC, at a Premier League match against Crystal Palace FC. DT38 continues to work closely with the Hammers. The annual DT38 Awareness Day allows us to raise funds and reach new people and the West Ham United Foundation use Dylan’s story to teach the importance of health and wellbeing to school children. The tremendous support of West Ham United to DT38 was cemented in history in 2016, when Dylan was awarded a memorial stone on Champions Place, a very special tribute outside the London Stadium.
In the Autumn of 2015, the work of DT38 began Down Under with the unveiling of a memorial statue of Dylan outside NIB Stadium, the home of Perth Glory FC in the presence of the former Premier of Western Australia, Colin Barnett. DT38 in Australia has continued to grow at a rapid pace and we regularly enjoy the support of the football communities of West Australia and through many other parts of the country. This support and that of our many donators and volunteers means we continue to reach more people than ever before. We regularly facilitate free testicular cancer screenings for men and we educate young people about Dylan, about bravery, and about the importance of health and wellbeing.
