The Great Rugby Try Moved To 2021

The Great Rugby Try, created by Foundation supporter Stuart Thom, has been moved to 2021.

Due to a number of logistical factors, Stuart's will now be aiming to complete his challenge between 11th and 12th September 2021.

"I will be kayaking 22 miles from Northern Ireland to Scotland, cycling 175 miles from Portpatrick to Newcastle then running The Great North Run, all within 24 hours!"

"I grew up in Melrose and enjoyed watching Doddie play rugby at Melrose and was fortunate enough to play the odd game with Doddie."

"The challenge will be tough, but nothing compared to the everyday challenge Doddie and fellow sufferers of MND face."

Please help by donating as much as you can.

If you want to join Stuart for any part of the challenge, please get in touch.
