Story

I am taking on the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon in memory of Danny Jones for Cardiomyopathy 🇬🇧 

Donations can also be made via text:

Sending CMDJ86 followed by £1, £3, £5 or £10. To 70070

Danny Jones, always brought a smile and his charisma to both the dressing room and Physio room.

A game I was due to cover (as Physio to Keighley Cougars) became a day of sad events. Early into the game Danny suffered a heart attack which was later found as Cardiomyopathy. He was a true athlete and leader and gave his sport everything. He had also given me a nickname of Serg (Aguero) as he found a resemblance. He would be the last I taped before he set on the field. We would discuss the latest Game of Thrones every week too!! Both the sport and world lost a great individual!

A condition also seen in A+E with young promising athletes.

In his memory and for those aspiring athletes in Rugby (league and union) and sport, I have set myself this challenge. Please donate to help prevent such events in the future.
