Our Storey - continues..
Thanks to the incredible achievements of Kevin Sinfield and Bravery of Rob Burrow, Doddie Weir and many others, the general public are much more aware or have at least heard of this awful Terminal Illness with no known Cure .

A close friend within our local community (Rob Steele) was diagnosed with MND last year. A group of friends came together (Team: 150MND) to organise this event to raise even more awareness and funds for the on-going research, Most of Team: 150MND are the Participants in the challenge, supported by other helpers and assistants.

Team: 150MND wanted a challenge and came up with this idea over a pint in the local George & Dragon Pub, Tonbridge, since then it has become a reality.

It is a gruelling challenge for any Fit Sportsman to walk 150 miles in 7 days and Team: 150MND are mainly “Novice Walkers” but are in training and have no end of determination to see it through. 
This is not our first challenge or fundraiser, between us and individually, we have raised many thousands for worthy causes. Likewise, with our close friend Rob suffering MND and with huge admiration and inspiration from Kevin Sinfield, we held a local event in August 2023 and raised just short of 80k - in one night. It was a tremendous effort from local friends, we donated the proceeds to the same two Main Charities, refer to links above.

As a follow-up to this success, we wanted to do something more challenging for the same cause and raise even more money, the team have organised the:-

150 MILE CHALLENGE FOR MND

WITH YOUR HELP WE WILL RAISE £150,000

We will walk 150 miles in 7 continuous days, starting from Twickenham Stadium to Southampton and then around the Isle of Wight, following the coastline.

About MND
MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease which affects the brain and spinal cord. It attacks the nerves that control movement and eventually leaves people unable to move, communicate or breathe. It kills a third of people within a year of diagnosis and half within two years. There is no cure.

The facts
• MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.
• It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles no longer work. MND does not usually affect the senses such as sight, sound, feeling etc.• It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe.
• Over 80% of people with MND experience changes to their speech, which may become slurred or quieter. Some people lose their ability to speak entirely.
• It affects people from all communities.
• Around 50% of people with MND experience some form of cognitive change while living with the disease. This can affect their thinking or behaviour. This percentage rises to around 80% for people who are in the advanced stages of the disease.
• It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis.• A person’s lifetime risk of developing MND is around 1 in 300.
• Six people per day are diagnosed with MND in the UK.• It affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time.• It kills six people per day in the UK, this is just under 2,200 per year.
• It has no cure.
