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.
After a successful inaugural Doddie5 Virtual Ride in the summer, on Sunday December 13th we will stage the Doddie'5 Virtual Christmas Special giving everyone another chance to support the My Name5 Doddie Foundation, without having to brave the elements. The event is on www.Zwift.com with a 50 mile route and the big bonus is that you won’t get wet.
If you are willing to sign up to Zwift the event is free and all we ask is for a small donation be made to the charity.
To raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease
and investigate potential cures, and to make grants to individuals suffering from MND,
to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
