Manchester United legend joined Kevin Sinfield in fundraising challenge for Leeds Rhinos teammate Rob Burrow

Kevin Sinfield has gone above and beyond for his good friend and former teammate Rob Burrow.

Since Burrow was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in December 2019, Sinfield has run seven marathons in seven days in 2020, 101 miles in 24 hours in 2021 and last week ran seven ultramarathons in a week as he looks to raise money and awareness in the fight against MND.

In total he has raised around £6 million in the fight against MND including £2 million with his latest challenge.

He has shown everyone what it is to be a friend in his efforts for Burrow but it is also important to remember that many of others have also, like Sinfield, done their bit for Burrow including many people who ran alongside Sinfield day by day including his former Leeds teammates Jamie Peacock and Jamie Jones-Buchanan.

He was also joined by a former Manchester United legend.

Sinfield and Burrow enjoyed seven great nights at Old Trafford as they won seven Super League title alongside each other.

A man who knows every inch of that stadium Paul Scholes, one of the Premier League’s most successful players and one of the most decorated English players of all time, joined Sinfield in his fundraiser.

It is perhaps something football related that needs a bigger spot light on it during a controversial World Cup and after Manchester United made the wrong kind of headlines when Cristiano Ronaldo spoke out about the club.
