24 Hour Pool Marathon – 2017


For the third year, the 24 hour pool marathon was  great success. We would like to thank everyone involved in this year’s event, which began on the 11th March at the Sinfin Social Club, Derby.

We are extremely appreciative of all those who donated through playing games of pool and buying raffle tickets. We would also like to thank the Sinfin Social Club for hosting the event and of course, the 6 players who endured the whole 24 hours!

Final amounts raised at the event will be added soon.

The continuous support is amazing to see and we can only imagine how proud Bobby must be.


Castle Martial Arts, Sheffield held a non-stop 1 hour kickathon on Saturday February 4th for the Bobby Dorka Foundation Trust.

Individuals were in teams of 5 and the challenge was for someone from the team to constantly be kicking for the whole hour!

It was a fun team event that anyone could join in with.

The final amount raised will be added soon.

A massive thank you and congratulations to everyone that took part!

Sheffield to Derby Run

With thanks to James Sheehan from Castle Martial Arts and George Carter from JJBBA, October 1st and 2nd 2016 saw a group of brave individuals running and walking from Sheffield to Derby – a gruelling 46 miles!

With individuals of all ages setting themselves personal goals to either complete the entire route or a part of it, the weekend was a massive challenge. It took a lot of  courage and determination with the memory of Bobby being the driving force for many of the runners/walkers.

If conquering this personal challenge wasn’t enough, everyone involved did an amazing job at collecting sponsorships and donations, with the total amount raised for the event currently standing at £6,194!

As a charity, we have set a target of raising £25,000 by 21st March 2017 as this will mark Bobby’s 25th birthday. Through your generous donations and sponsors so far, we currently stand at £15,000. Therefore, the target for this event is £10,000 so we would be extremely grateful for your help in achieving this. Thank you.


On behalf of the BDFT, we would like to thank everyone who was involved in this event; whether that was through running/walking, donating or supporting and encouraging the runners/walkers – Thank you!
