“We’ve all seen rugby league hero Rob Burrow’s courageous battle with MND and for us it hit home even harder as unfortunately last year, mid lockdown, my auntie was diagnosed with the incurable disease,” says Mr Master.

Mr Masters has also sponsored his local rugby team Guiseley Rangers who have printed this year’s kit with Rob Burrow’s number 7 and “supporting Rob” on the front

“I have been watching Rob fight against the disease and this has spurred us all on to raise as much as we can for the all important MNDA charity for the viral research they are doing in the hope to find a cure for the terrible condition.”

Mr Masters hope to complete the challenge in under 12 hours and raise more than £2,000
