Keep It Up for Soccer Aid is all about challenging yourself to keep up doing something different and football freestyler Dan Magness has certainly taken it to heart.

He's attempting to break the World Record for ‘the longest distance travelled whilst juggling a football’, by travelling 200 miles from London to Manchester, doing keepie uppys for up to 11 hours a day over 10 days.

Dan kicked off his challenge this morning with a visit to the Daybreak studios. He joined Soccer Aid co-founder Jonathan Wilkes to discuss Keep It Up, Soccer Aid and Jonathan's recent trip to Mexico with Robbie Williams before moving on to Wembley to teach keepy uppy skills to local children.

But now the hard work has really begun as Dan sets off on the first leg of his gruelling journey. You can follow his progress on our Twitter map or Twitter feed, where we'll be sharing regular updates. If you want to show your support and help save and change children's lives then you can sponsor Dan on his fundraising page.

And if you're feeling inspired by his incredible journey why not find out how you can get involved in Keep It Up. You don't have to break a world record to take part!
