A group of family and friends of the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation will embark on a bike ride next month which will see the group visit the clubs former Wanderers defender Stephen Darby played for.
After playing professional football since the age of 17, the right-back’s career was sadly cut short in 2018 at the age of 29 when he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
Alongside Chris Rimmer, who was diagnosed with MND in 2015, he set up the Darby Rimmer Foundation to raise awareness for the disease.
The epic ride will take place on Monday 17 August and will last six days.
It will see them travel through 10 counties as they visit Swindon Town, Notts County, Liverpool, Bolton Wanderers, Rochdale and Bradford City.
The ride was an idea Stephen's brother, Kevin, and their uncle Mark, had towards the end of 2019 as they thought it would be a great way to raise both awareness of MND and at the same time raise funds for the Darby Rimmer Foundation.
As well as generating important awareness of MND, the funds raised will go towards supporting those who have MND and their families, and also research to help find a cure.
