Father Abraham's Tour de Prem

Posted by Luke Green

Simon Adams was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2009, within the first week he had set up a bucket list. One of Simon's aims was to raise not just awareness of MND, but also £1Million to help fund vital research, so that in the not too distance future the words "you have Motor Neurone Disease" will be followed by the phase "it is curable".

To mark the 10 years since Simon’s passing, Matt Price and Mark Beresford-Ward are aiming to raise £15,000 towards the £1,000,000 target (which is currently at £565,000) by and completing a north to south cycle ride visiting each Premiership Rugby Club on their way back to Plymouth. Across 12 days they will cover approx. 850 miles by bike, visiting rugby 16 clubs along the way.

We caught up with the dynamic duo before they set off on their mammoth ride to see how the training had been going and find out a little more about the challenge. For more information and to follow their journey visit their website https://www.tourdeprem.com/
