Yesterday, in the wake of completing his sixth ultramarathon in six days, Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield surpassed his fundraising target of £777,777.77.
The former Leeds skipper is running seven ultramarathons in seven days to raise money and awareness in the battle against Motor Neurone Disease in the name of his former teammate and good friend Rob Burrow.
This morning Sinfield has again surpassed another milestone as he reached the £1 million mark.
The Leeds Rhinos legend may have 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.
He has already raised millions running seven marathons in seven days in 2020 and 101 miles in 24 hours in 2021.
He has now raised more as he does his best to raise money and awareness in the battle against MND for Burrow.
