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.
Simon Brennan and his amazing fund raising team have partnered with the great people at Boom Cycle (https://www.boomcycle.co.uk/) who will host a 24 hour spinathon starting at 7pm on the 18th October at their studio in Waterloo. We will have two sets of riders. The competitive teams of six will ride, in pairs and in two hour shifts, unbroken for 24 hours. The non-competitive teams can have a team of as many people as they like up to 24 people doing an hour each! Friends and family are most welcome to support at any time!
Boom Cycle have kindly offered to provide food and refreshments as well as shower facilities, sleeping space and towels. Plus they will host the afterparty once the ride is over!
Come and be a part of something amazing and please give generously to help put an end to this disease once and for all!

On 20th October 2019 Chandos Lawn Tennis Club will be hosting an invitational tennis competition on 20th October 2019 in support of the sufferers of Motor Neuron Disease, including long time club member Simon Brennan.
The competition is being run by head coach Javier Romero and participants include the teammates of Simon and other club members who wish to raise funds in support of this debilitating disease which has no known cure (yet).
Our chosen MND charity is "My name'5 Doddie Foundation." with whom Simon has become closely associated since his diagnosis. There will be a host of fund raising activities on the day and an opportunity to spend time with Simon and his family. Please give generously.
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.
