Rob Burrow Statement

02 June 2024

It is with profound sadness that we learn of the passing of Rob Burrow, a true friend and fierce advocate in the fight against motor neuron disease. Rob was a remarkable athlete but, more importantly, an extraordinary human being.

Doddie and Rob shared a unique bond, both as legendary rugby players and as warriors against this devastating disease. Rob’s efforts, alongside Kevin Sinfield, have galvanised the MND community and beyond, raising significant funds and awareness.

Rob’s spirit and unwavering positivity in the face of adversity have left an indelible mark. His journey, shared so openly, has brought much-needed attention to MND, and his legacy will inspire future generations.

Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to Rob’s wife Lindsey, their children Macy, Maya, and Jackson, and all of Rob’s family and friends. The rugby community and the MND community have lost a giant, but the impact of Rob’s work and spirit will endure. We remain committed to a world free of MND, driven by the memory and example of incredible people like Rob, and we will continue to push forward in our quest for a cure.
