The Big Boom Challenge

Team photo

In early 2019, our dear friend Simon Brennan was diagnosed with progressive Motor Neurone Disease. He has thrown himself into raising money for the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation (, which raises funds for research into the disease and provides financial support for those suffering from MND. Some of Simon's previous fundraising efforts and national press coverage can be seen here:

Now, we have partnered with the great people at Boom Cycle ( and Morgan Stanley ( who will host a 24 hour spinathon starting at 7pm on the 18th October at Boom Cycle's studio in Waterloo. We will have two sets of riders. The competitive teams of six will ride, in pairs and in two hour shifts, unbroken for 24 hours. The non-competitive teams can have a team of as many people as they like up to 24 people doing an hour each! Friends and family are most welcome to support at any time!

Boom Cycle have kindly offered to provide food and refreshments as well as shower facilities, sleeping space and towels. Plus they will host the afterparty once the ride is over!

Come and be a part of something amazing and please give generously to help put an end to this disease once and for all!
