Post by mentalcase »

On Friday, the amazing Kevin Sinfield will be doing 7 marathons in 7 cities in 7 days for the MND charity and his good friend Rob Burrow.
Lets see how much coverage outside Leeds the corrupt bbc show, vernon kay did a marathon for the children in need, well done vernon, not knocking you son, but it was rammed down our throats for 3 days, lets see what recognition Sir Kev gets.

Day 1 : Leeds to York

Day 2 : Cardiff

Day 3 : Birmingham

Day 4 : Edinburgh

Day 5 : Dublin

Day 6 : Brighton

Day 7 : London

A phenomenal achievement in itself :clap: :clap:

Everyone should have a friend like Kevin, he's been brilliant with Rob, doesn't get the recognition he deserves. Good luck, Kev!

To be fair to the BBC, they generally give the magnificent Kev plenty of publicity.

The guy is a hero and should be knighted for all he does which would generate more publicity for the MND charity. Knowing you have someone like Kevin on your side must be a massive comfort to the Burrow’s family. Just went online & made a donation, only took a minute.

Kevin isn't human, he can't be.

What an amazing selfless act for his pal and MND.

Sinfield featured heavily in last years BBC 'Sports personality of the year programme' and even received an award for his fundraising from the 'corrupt' BBC. Thats more recognition and publicity gained in 5 minutes than thousands of other ,equally deserving and valued fundraisers receive in a lifetime.
Fair play to the man ,but he's one of thousands, including Vernon. :clap:

He’s doing an extra mile at the end of each run, to encourage people to “go the extra mile” for the charity.
