Thames Marathon Swim For MND

Sunday 14 August 2022


Rod Fisher is taking on the Thames Marathon in aid of My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. This long-distance endurance swim from Henley-on-Thames to Marlow will see Rod tackle 13km of water.

Rod works for Focus FM, a company which has chosen the foundation as their Chairty of the Year.

Disucssing this amazing challenge, Rod has said "I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in quite a few fund raising sporting events in the last so many years, from cycling to marathons, triathlons and swims. I think this marathon swim will possibility be my last hoorah as it were (famous last words). I had read up a bit about MND via your website and others and I’m also concerned that UK based charities might be suffering due to the economy and world events, and that they can also get overlooked. Its a privilege for me to help MN5N in some small way, whilst challenging myself at the same time."
