    Story

    Bedale and Aiskew Runners are completing a 48 hour endurance run starting on Friday 1st April 2022 and finishing on Sunday 3rd April 2022.

    We have all been touched by the tragic but uplifting story of Doddie Weir, Rob Burrow and Stephen Darby and the impact that Motor Neurone Disease (MND) has had upon the lives of both themselves and their families. The uplifting element of the story is how they have used their profile to raise funds for MND research and treatment as well as greater awareness of the condition.

    MND is a progressive neurological disorder that progressively damages parts of the nervous system and the brain, where the motor neurones gradually stop working and at present it is not known why this happens. It can impact any one at any age, but is more likely to affect people over the age of 50 and is a severely life-shortening condition with symptoms such as muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech and twitches.

    There is a 1 IN 300 RISK OF BEING DIAGNOSED and sadly at this time there is no known cure and that is why the members of our small running club in North Yorkshire are inspired to support MND, both the research for a cure and the care for those diagnosed with this terrible disease

    The club are going to complete a 48 hour endurance running event, with a club member running at all times throughout the 48 hour period, and the club as a whole are looking to run in excess of 1000 miles during the weekend of 1st-3rd April 2022.

    The ambition of the club is to raise £4800 to support two distinct charities. The My Names Doddie Foundation which is a foundation working to create a world free of MND, funding research projects and the development of new treatments for MND and the Rob Burrow Centre for MND appeal, which is looking to build a state of the art centre MND care-centre to give people with MND and their families the best possible care and support.

    This disease impacts so many people across the UK, and sadly their families too.

    As a running club we would be hugely grateful if you could donate towards these 2 amazing causes that are making such a massive difference to MND research and care of those unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with the condition.

    Thank you to everyone who donates - every £1.00 raised will help the runners stay motivated to keep pounding the streets of Bedale and Aiskew during the 48 hour event!!

    We will distribute every penny raised equally between these truly deserving charities.
