With just 24 hours until Fothers Mission 24 officially starts, I’ve recorded a quick video message to give you all an update:
The running starts on Friday at 5pm at The City Ground where I’ll be joined by Ryan Yates. Donations have been brilliant and I can’t thank everyone enough.
If you haven’t donated yet, there’s still time and there’s also still time to get involved and join me on a mile.
Thanks again and I despite the nerves, I can’t wait to get started.
What is Fothers Mission 24?
Fothers Mission 24 will see me, Simon Fotheringham, run a mile every hour for 24 hours to raise money for MND.
Following my father suffering for many years and losing his battle with MND last year, I wanted to do something to help the many other people and their families suffering with this horrendous disease.
I wanted to do something worthwhile and memorable in my Dad’s honour and you can read my full story here.
I’ll be joined along the way by some great friends and colleagues and also some amazing sporting and celebrity names. Only a few have been announced so far, but you can check out the full list here.
If you’d like to get involved with Fothers Mission 24, you can do so in many ways. Donations can be made via a dedicated JustGiving page, you can become a sponsor and enjoy a range of benefits. Alternatively, we appreciate all the support so feel free to spread the word and share this website with friends, family and colleagues or follow me on social media (links in the footer).
