Two nine-year-olds from Oldfield RFC in Bath are getting on their bikes to raise funds for My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.
Ollie Ballard and Olly Ball are embarking on a 55 mile cycle challenge to support the Foundation. Their club, oldfield RFC in Bath, has alreadt been hugely supportive of the Foundation and raised funds last year through a variety of activities including a car wash. Foundation CEO Jill Douglas was able to join the minis and juniors at their end of season session in May.
Ollie and Olly said: "We both love playing rugby and Doddie Weir was one of the best players and amazing characters who played it. He now has motor neuron disease and his foundation helps raise funds into research for the disease. We want to help and thought setting a huge bike ride challenge was a good idea. We've been practising lots and hope to raise loads of money. Thank you for helping us hit our target."
