THE daughters of former Warrington Wolves’player and coach Paul Darbyshire are set to run 10k a day for ten days to mark the 10th anniversary of their dad’s death from Motor Neurone Disease.
Ella and Georgia Darbyshire from Winwick, Warrington are planning to do the charity challenge in June to raise funds for the The Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).
They also lost their lovely Grandad John to this dreadful disease and miss them both so much.
They are really determined to try and raise as much money and awareness as they can for The MNDA. The Association focuses on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people living with or affected by motor neurone disease in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and hopefully one day will help to find a cure for this disease.
Paul, who died aged just 41, played rugby league for the Wolves for 10 years and stayed with the club in a coaching capacity after his retirement in 1997, before committing to Munster as head of strength and conditioning.
If anyone would like to kindly sponsor Ella & Georgia donations can be made on their just giving page as follows:
