Fans' marathon trek to Bramall Lane
And organisers are confident the final total will be £2,000.
The party, which is expected to be 22 strong, has already raised almost £1,000 for The Meningitis Trust.
A group of Latics' fans will leave Boundary Park at six o'clock tonight on a 40.1 mile sponsored walk to the npower League One match tomorrow at Sheffield United.
Dean and his wife Danielle, who are pictured at the recent Chesterfield v Latics match, have supported the charity walk to raise money for the Trust.
The first part of the walk from Boundary Park to the Junction Inn, Huddersfield Road, will be led by former Latics' captain Dean Holden, whose 17-month-old daughter Cici tragically died from a meningitis infection just a few months ago while the family was on holiday.
The charity walk is also supported by family and friends of Meningitis Trust Ambassador and Latics' season-ticket holder Alex Williams who sadly died a few months ago. The walkers now want to raise as much money to support the charity in memory of both Cici and Alex.
Sheffield United's Community Trust has made St Mary's Church Hall available for the walkers to change and have a rest before the game.
The walkers are expected to reach Bramall Lane by 1pm in time for kick off.
