Rob Burrow’s wife Lindsey training hard for marathon as today could mark the beginning of exciting new fundraising opportunity for MND

Leeds Rhinos legends Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield have been heroes on the field and these days they are heroes off it as well as the fight to increase funding and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease as Burrow bravely fights the disease itself and has done since December 2019.

However, there is another hero in the shape of Rob’s wife Lindsey. She is Burrow’s fulltime career and as documentaries have shown is one of the strongest women in the UK at present as she assists Burrow in his courageous fight.

Now she is preparing to help in a different way as she prepares to run a marathon for Burrow and the MND community.

She will be participating in the Rob Burrow marathon on 14th May alongside the likes of former Super League referee Richard Silverwood, other famous rugby league faces and Sinfield and Burrow with Burrow going around in a specially designed wheelchair for the marathon.

Burrow thanked those who have been helping Lindsey’s training.

This isn’t the only fundraising on the horizon, in fact there could be funds raised today.

Today a new name might be raising more money for the fight against MND and that name is Beep Beep Burrow.

Beep Beep Burrow is a six-year-old racehorse that is owned by the Good Racing Company and he’s set to make his maiden run of 2023 tomorrow at Doncaster races.

Any prize money earned by the horse goes straight towards raising awareness for MND with the Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Hospitals Charity being the two beneficiaries.

The second horse to be named after the Rhinos’ legend, Beep Beep Burrow runs in the 17-runner 3:30pm race and will have Craig Nichol riding him.

Burrow Seven was the first horse in association with the former Rhinos’ number seven, and having raced four times and achieving place money twice Burrow Seven has now been retired and will begin work as a therapy horse.

Currently priced at 33/1 Beep Beep Burrow will be watched by Rob and family as they attend the racecourse to hopefully watch the Jedd O’Keefe horse win.

Wearing silks that represent the iconic amber and blue of Burrow’s beloved Leeds Rhinos, Beep Beep will be one of the most popular winners of the year should he get his head in front during the race that is named in his honour – the “Good Luck ‘Beep Beep Burrow’ Open Maiden National Hunt Flat Race”.
