Rob Burrow has been fighting Motor Neurone Disease for nearly four years now.
The Leeds Rhinos legend was diagnosed in December 2019 and he has been an inspiration with the way that he has battled the disease and raised awareness for others.
He said from the beginning that it’s not been about him but the people who get the disease who don’t have the same support network around them as he does.
He has been truly amazing as has his wife Lindsey, their children and the likes of Kevin Sinfield.
So much has been done by Burrow and in the name of Burrow.
One interesting event was the Rob Burrow Strictly Ball which is coming back in April 2024 at Blackpool.
This was confirmed on social media:
“We are excited to announce that ‘The Rob Burrow Strictly Ball 2024’ is going to the dance capital of the world…. Blackpool!!! Tickets go on sale soon.”
