Simon Fotheringham, Nottingham Forest’s Commercial Sales Manager, is taking part in ‘Fothers Mission 24’ (#FM24).
The challenge will see him run one mile every hour, on the hour, for 24 hours to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Simon’s father was diagnosed with (MND) in 2006 which saw him lose the use of most of his body, including his voice and his ability to walk. 15 years of torture – being of sound mind but trapped inside a body that no longer worked – he finally lost his brave battle just before Christmas last year 2020.
There is still no cure for this horrendous disease, so Simon has decided to try and raise much needed funds and awareness of the disease by completing ‘Fothers Mission 24’.
He be joined on each of these 24 miles by sponsors, donors and friends. So far, cricketing legend, Stuart Broad, has pledged to run one of the miles, fixtures permitting. Simon’s 3rd and 4th miles will be ran at The Bay on Friday 2nd July, 7pm and 8pm.
You can get involved too by donating, sponsoring or simply sharing Simon’s story.
