Inspirational people like Oli and Sinfield I find ...7 marathons in 7 days gosh that's a task and a half
And in some awful weather as well.
:clap:
Just read KS raised over 716 grand for the MND association his target was 77,777 when he set off... incredible effort really
I think oli Holmes target was 2k
I believe he’s raised over 9k.

:clap: :clap:
Yes. Brilliant. Well played to all involved.

Kev Sinfield has only gone and hit the £1,000.000 mark. £922,223 more than his original target of £77,777.

Amazing effort from Kevin Sinfield and to see him embracing Rob Burrow and the joy on Rob’s face was such an emotional moment. Also the effort of Ollie Holmes should be applauded. What is it about Rugby League players (and fans) that differences can be put aside when tragedies occur? Rugby League can be proud of itself as a truly family sport, and I’m all for Kev in particular to receive a knighthood in the New Year s Honours List.

Whilst I never really rated Sinfield as a player, you simply cannot knock his efforts for the fund raising for both RB and MND.

It has also provide good, positive coverage of the RL community and what we stand for but I do have a little frustration at the lack of coverage for Oli Holmes' efforts.

Well done everyone concerned.

It seems Oggys effort was a more local one and seems to be more likely Cas fans who donated whereas KS effort was more national and got national coverage which isn't a bad thing. Good effort from both though and of course for a brilliant cause.

The money that's been raised will lead to more trials to find a cure for MND the awareness that's been raised by Doddie Wier and Rob and now people like Kev and Oli raising the funds as been one of the good story's in a dreadful year

Not forgotten , mistimed a little maybe
If Oggy was starting his stint next monday he would get more coverage, the onus this time was (rightly i suppose) on Robs mate and skipper.

Great work by all fundrasers though
