Cycling for Motor Neurone Disease

Cycling for Motor Neurone Disease

February 16, 2023
Richard Boult, Commercial Technical Manager – Cement, is doing a charity bike ride in aid of, and to raise awareness of, three Motor Neurone Disease charities/campaigns (MND, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and 4Ed (Ed Slater)).

On 11th and 12th March, Richard is planning to cycle from Welford Road Stadium in Leicester (Leicester Tigers RFC) to Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester (Gloucester Rugby RFC) a total distance of around 90 miles. The arrival is planned to coincide with the build up to the game Gloucester v Tigers (The Slater Cup) where further charity activities will be taking place.

The campaign 4Ed is to raise funds and awareness to support MND sufferers following Ed Slater’s (ex Tigers and Gloucester) announcement he is suffering from the condition in the summer of last year and the My Name’5 Doddie campaign in a similar vein is in support of MND sufferers in memory of Doddie Weir (Scotland and Lions) who sadly lost his life aged 52 to the condition late in 2022.

The riders will be wearing riding apparel with a mixture of the two teams kit design plus sponsors logos with other support being given through charitable donations and time and of course the normal ‘’ type channels.
