MND is destroying lives.
MND first came to my attention when Springbok legend, Joost van der Westhuizen, was diagnosed with it in 2011 and then died from it in 2017.
I watched from afar as my former team-mate, Mike Crisp, bravely battled it and the high-profile cases of Rob Burrow, Doddie Weir and very recently Ed Slater have raised more awareness of this cruellest of diseases.
It’s with this in mind that I will once again be supporting the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation during this year’s Great Rugger Run. We raised over £11,000 last year – that’s the target to beat!
