Running For Rob
Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow has announced he has been diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND).
Burrow, 37, retired from playing at the end of the 2017 season, his final game seeing him winning his eighth Super League Grand Final.
The father of three played his entire career at Leeds Rhinos, making 492 appearances for the club following his debut in 2001, placing him in fifth in the club’s all-time list of career appearances. He scored 196 tries for a total of 1,103 points. He won the Challenge Cup in 2014 and 2015 as well as three World Club Challenges and three League Leaders Shields.
Since the announcement, the rugby league community have come together to support Rob and his family. Hunslet RLFC welcome you to take part in a 10k run to raise funds which will be split equally between Rob Burrow's fund and the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) who are a world leading centre for research into Motor Neurone Disease. To ensure every penny of the donation goes towards these two funds, there will be no finishers medal or t-shirt.
The run will take place on Saturday 4th April, first group setting off at 11am and the last group at approx. 11.45am. Starting from Hunslet's John Charles Centre for Sport, Middleton Grove, Leeds LS11 5DJ and finish at Emerald Headingley Stadium. The South Leeds Lakers running club have kindly provided run leaders and pacers, you will be allocated a group based on your anticipated 10k finish time. This group will be made known to you prior to the event.
We ask all runners to make a contribution of either £5, £10, £15, £20. If you are a UK tax payer you can also tick the option to gift aid your donation. Gift Aid is great because it means the fund will get extra money added to your donations at no extra cost to you. For every £1 donated, the fund will receive £1.25 when you add Gift Aid.
Anyone under 16 year of age, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
