Run With the Rhinos
Join past players and Rhinos staff to take part in the Leeds 10k on 5th July with the Run with the Rhinos team. The annual run is one of the flagship fundraising events for the charity and this year all funds raised will be split between Leeds Rhinos Foundation and the Rob Burrow Fund, which has been set up to support the former Rhino and his young family following his recent Motor Neurone Disease (MND) diagnosis.
Bob Bowman, Chief Operating Officer for Leeds Rhinos Foundation, said: “Our charity was set up to support people who are in need in our community, so it is right that we focus our fundraising efforts to helping Rob as he faces his toughest battle. Rob was part of the club’s golden generation and has provided supporters with many magical memories that have made him one of the most loved and respected players in our sport.
“He has always supported our charity and taken time to make a difference in his community and now it is our turn to help him. I know the club have been inundated with people contacting them to ask what they can do and we hope the Run with the Rhinos event will be the perfect opportunity for people to challenge themselves and come together to support Rob and his family and also help raise awareness for MND.”
