March in Rome

It was a remarkable sight in the centre of Rome - a city which has seen many remarkable events over the centuries!

The 'March of 1,000 Headbands' was the finale of the 'Doddie Gump', which set out to get people walking 50,000 miles, or twice round the world, to raise money for the My Name's Doddie foundation.

Rugby fans in Rome were asked to wear a headband - Weir's trademark on the pitch - and walk 2.5 miles from Piazza del Popolo to the Stadio Olympico.

In the event, Italian police were forced to close roads on the way to the stadium as more than 5,000 people joined in the good-natured march.

It marked the end of a fantastic Six Nations with so much support shown for the Foundation and many opportunities to raise awareness around MND.

Thanks to all for your magnificent support!
