For a young player the question becomes: do you want to spend the best part of your twenties chasing a dream that could collapse at any moment? Former Liverpool, Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers footballer Stephen Darby and close friend and British Forces Veteran Chris Rimmer have partnered together to launch The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation. Sinfield's epic challenges have included running 7 marathons in 7 days, and running over 101 miles in 24 hours. Esther Wakeman, chief executive of Leeds Hospitals Charity, said: “Kevin has always gone the extra mile for Rob and the MND community. The Century list includes brand-name novelists such as James Patterson, Karin Slaughter, Lisa Jewell and Katie Fforde, and we are also proud to be publishing compelling and powerful debut novels such as Wool by Hugh Howey and Until You?

A one-club legend of Leeds Rhinos, who has now crossed codes as a defensive coach for the England national rugby union team, Kevin Sinfield is a rugby icon. The plan for our fourth challenge, the '7 in 7 in 7 Challenge' is to run 7 ultra marathons in 7 cities in 7 days with an extra mile each day that will show our support for the MND community. We felt so privileged yesterday in Brighton to have the opportunity to complete the Extra Mile alongside so many people living with MND. On day 2, we will be running in Cardiff, on day 3 in Birmingham, then Edinburgh, Dublin, Brighton and finishing on day 7 in London.Once the dreaded MND diagnosis was confirmed, Sinfield pledged to raise enough money to ensure Burrow’s family would be looked after and he set a deadline of the following Christmas.
