Waterton MND Week

Event dates: 4th April 2022 – 8th April 2022

Waterton Academy Trust are raising money for Leeds Hospitals Charity and Motor Neurone Disease Association

Our story

Waterton Academy Trust is proud to be partnered with Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation to help raise funds for Rob Burrow and the MND Association as well as Leeds Hospitals Charity.

In December 2019, the former Leeds Rhinos scrum-half and captain Rob Burrow was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, just two years after ending his career.

The tricky halfback was known as one of the Rhinos’ most consistent performers throughout a spate of success under former head coach Brian McDermott.

In a glittering career, Burrow was part of eighth Grand Final-winning teams, claiming the Harry Sunderland trophy in both 2007 and 2011.

Alongside his triumphs on the pitch, he was also given an MBE in the 2021 New Year’s Honours List following his successes in bringing more awareness to Motor Neurone Disease.

The week commencing 4th April, Waterton Academy Trust will be hosting a variety of different fundraising activities throughout our schools, including a ‘wearing your favourite club colours to school day.’

The activities will be kicked off at the Be Well Support Stadium with a Rugby League festival at the beginning of the week on the 4th of April 2022, while participants will also be offered the opportunity to parade around the pitch at half-time of Wakefield's game against Castleford, continuing their collection of vital funds, with all money raised heading straight to the fight against MND.

Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Leeds Hospitals Charity and Motor Neurone Disease Association.
