In June 2017, Doddie Weir revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this as yet incurable disease.
The vast majority of the funds raised by My Name’5 Doddie Foundation is invested into Motor Neuron Disease (MND) research. We take this responsibility seriously and want to share with you how we reach our decisions.
The Great Rugby Cycle 2020 will cover over 1000 miles in an anti-clockwise direction around Ireland in eleven days, taking in some of the finest scenery Ireland has to offer. The peloton will be joined along the route by rugby legends, sporting stars and celebrities from TV and Film to raise awareness and funds for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
