We fund research and raise awareness of MND to help anyone touched by MND.


We were asked to create a presentation for English on a person who we find inspirational. I love Rugby, as do my friends, and I researched the amazing players from the past. I found a some footage of Doddie Weir playing for Scotland and watched the footage of him being injured on the Lions tour. I thought he was amazing, putting the Lions Team above his own aspirations. A true sportsman. 

That was enough to make me think how much I would love to be that kind of player. Then I found out about Doddie's diagnosis with MND and the amazing work he has been doing for his charity My Name'5s Doddie. 

Now I felt I had to do something. SO with the amazing enthusiasm of my great friends at school we have set out a challenge. 

Eddie, Felix, Henry and Harri are joining me, Freddie, in our 5's challenge. As 5 Year 5 boys, we are going to complete 5km of a distance exercise, 5 days a week for 5 weeks. 

We want to raise a really ambitious £5000. 

Please help us do it. You can see what a massive impact this disease can have on people and we need to understand more about it, get more medicines and treatments and help support those diagnosed. 

Doddie inspires us everyday - please sponsor us and support a great cause.
