Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield smashes fundraising target as major milestone comes into view

Kevin Sinfield has done it all in the sport of rugby league.

The Leeds Rhinos legend guided Leeds Rhinos to seven Super League titles as captain of the club.

He also lifted three World Club Challenges, three League Leaders’ Shields and a pair of Challenge Cups in a trophy laden career.

Awarded the Lance Todd Trophy in 2005, the Harry Sunderland Award in 2009 and 2012 as well as the Golden Boot as the world’s best player in 2012, he scooped individual honours too.

In his final season in the game, Sinfield guided Leeds Rhinos to a historic treble.

He also holds the record for the most points in Super League history and the most goals. He is also third on the all time points scorers list in the sport and second for Super League appearances.

Yet, he will tell you the biggest achievement he has accomplished is the money he has raised in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease.

Since his former teammate Rob Burrow was diagnosed in December 2019, Sinfield has raised millions in the fight against MND as well as so much awareness running seven marathons in seven days in 2020, 101 miles in 24 hours last year and today he will complete his latest challenge.

When he arrives at the Rugby League World Cup Final at Old Trafford today he will have run seven ultramarathons in seven days.

He set out to raise £777,777.77 with this challenge and he smashed that target yesterday.

Now, with just a few hours to go Sinfield is creeping closer to another £1 million raised in the fight against MND.
