MND

How emotional was that. Kevin Sinfield ran from Leicester Tigers to Leeds Rhinos (101 miles) in 24 hours for Motor Neurone Disease and his best mate Rob Burrows. Grown men crying. What a man he is.

Raising £2,728,848 in the process.

My mistake that's his total for all efforts, £702,534.89 for the run to Headingly, Amazing effort.

Been supporting the rhinos since i was kid. Sir kev has always been a legend to us. A true role model as a player and a man. My heart breaks for rob. I saw all of them come through the ranks in the youth team together. The unparalleled success they had was because vertually the whole team came through together from been 12-13 years of age. Thats why kev loves rob so much. We used to call them the band of brothers.. they truely are.

MND is the most evil disease. And at last the goverment has pledged money towards its reseach and hopefully one day finding the reasons behind it and a cure.

Plus the millions they raised when he ran 7 marathons in 7 days. Saying that Captain Tom raised 35 mil for walking around his garden, I guess the nation just took to Tom because of his age plus he was a lovely old man and a charmer.

Never hear much about all the millions raised. Usually goes to large charities with dozens of highly paid officials.
