Story

In memory of Doddie Weir and Roy Payne, and to all those who have suffered or are currently dealing with Motor Neurone Disease.

In July 2023, we are taking on the National 3 Peaks Challenge. The goal is to climb the 3 highest peaks in the UK (Ben Nevis, Scaffel Pike and Snowdon) in 24 hours.

MND is a disease which affects the motor neurons of the nervous system. It is life shortening and mostly progresses rapidly. MND damages and attacks the nerves, meaning that messages being sent from the brain to the muscles no longer continue to work.

Approximately 1,100 people are diagnosed with MND every year in the UK, and up to 5,000 adults in the UK are affected at any one time.

Doddie Weir, who played for Scotland Rugby, passed away in November 2022. Doddie was diagnosed in 2016 which inspired him to set up the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, and has to this day committed over £8m to research and over £2m for grants to patients since 2017.

In honour of the foundation, we have set out to raise £1,000 to help support people suffering with this awful disease and to hopefully find a cure one day. 

If you are able to donate, any help would be hugely appreciated. Please share this page amongst your friends and family as it makes a big difference.

Thank you,

Tom, Matt, Connor, Carl and Will x
