The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA, CHY 8510) is the only organisation of its kind in the country. His quiet, calm, committed leadership makes people want to support him and we are all doing that as he supports Rob Burrow and everyone living with MND' Clare Balding 'The friendship between Kevin Sinfield and Rob Burrow gives you faith in humankind' Sir Chris Hoy.

Told with Sinfield's characteristic warmth, dry wit and inspirational leadership, 'The Extra Mile' is the story of an astonishing life, of an enduring friendship, and of a remarkable, humble human being who has defied the odds. Nice insight into Sir Kev's life, not just the playing career but his life outside of rugby including his charity work, friendships, and family. As the charity of Leeds Teaching Hospitals, we provide support for eight areas which include Leeds General Infirmary, Leeds Children’s Hospital, Leeds Cancer Centre, St James’s University Hospital, Chapel Allerton Hospital, Seacroft Hospital, Wharfdale Hospital and Leeds Dental Institute. The story of his life, him growing up, him finding his love for rugby and his colleagues especially Rob is inspiring. That something was three body-sapping long distance endurance events which would have broken a lesser competitive spirit.

But in recent years has shown heroism of a very different kind through his selfless and extraordinary fundraising for. I did say last year that the Ultra 7 in 7 would complete the trilogy but there was always that caveat that Rocky 4 was my favourite Rocky film,” said Sinfield. For the MND community, every second counts and we will be making the most of every step on this challenge to raise awareness, funds and support for that community. Kevin is a selfless human who has found a new why and that is in the form of Rob Burrow and the MND community (as well as being a proud son, father, friend and husband). His ability to complete these amazing feats of endurance and athleticism creates a motivation that everything (or many things) are possible if we set our mind to it.

Sinfield continues to be a leader on and off the field, through his fundraising and now as defence coach for the England national rugby union team. The MND community have always given us incredible support and we wanted to find a way that we could show that support for more people around the country.

Kevin Sinfield was a fan favourite and rugby league superstar who switched codes to become a successful union coach for the Leicester Tigers and England. The Century list includes brand-name novelists such as James Patterson, Karin Slaughter, Lisa Jewell and Katie Fforde, and we are also proud to be publishing compelling and powerful debut novels such as Wool by Hugh Howey and Until You? Kevin Sinfield's fundraising is a poignant story of friendship and human endeavour' The Times Number 1 Sunday Times bestseller, June 2023. In autumn 2022, Sinfield embarked on his hardest endurance challenge yet, running 7 ultra marathons in 7 days, and raising almost GBP2 million for MND in the process. As we embark on this ultra challenge, it doesn’t even touch the challenges that people with MND face every day.

Marathons on successive days in wind and rain, run 101 miles in a day or seven ultra-marathons in a week? Kevin Sinfield and team are fundraising for Motor Neurone Disease Association, Leeds Hospitals Charity, The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. Former Liverpool, Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers footballer Stephen Darby and close friend and British Forces Veteran Chris Rimmer have partnered together to launch The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation. He was and is close friends with Rob Burrow from their time together at Leeds Rhinos to the present day and through that friendship has become recognised for far more than his sporting career.A year later he did the Ultra 7 in 7 – seven ultra marathons in seven days, Murrayfield to Old Trafford.
