On Saturday, 29th April Ian Cummings and his friends will be trying to break the world record for the furthest distance travelled in a golf buggy over 24 hours at our home ground to raise funds for the MND Association!
Back in May 2022, Saints fan Ian was sadly diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, a degenerative condition which affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord causing weakness which gets worse over time.
The MND Association, are a charity that focuses on improving access to care, research and campaigning for people affected by Motor Neurone Disease.
Ian, alongside his friends, are embarking on this world record attempt and 24 hour challenge to raise funds and awareness for the MNDA.
The current record for the furthest distance travelled in an electric golf over 24 hours is 193.12km (120 miles). Ian and the team are aiming to break that record by doing laps around the concourse of the Totally Wicked Stadium!
The rugby league community as a whole has been made more aware of MND and has come together to raise funds following rugby league legend Rob Burrow’s diagnosis, who himself has sought to increase the profile of MND and wanted to make a difference.
If you can spare some money and would like to donate to Ian and the team’s efforts for the MND Assocation, you can do so online by visiting their Just Giving page – CLICK HERE.
All donations are greatly appreciated, thank you.
