About this deal

Registered address: Give as you Live Ltd, 13 The Courtyard, Timothy's Bridge Road, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 9NP. What a thoroughly genuine man Kevin Sinfield is and I thank him from the bottom of my heart for all the money he has raised and the awareness of this cruel disease. When the same thing happened at another event soon after, with Burrow unable to say words with an ‘s’ in them, like ‘solicitor’ and ‘necessity’, he knew something was amiss.

That's what Kevin Sinfield has done for his former teammate Rob Burrow, struck down with MND in December 2019, and he's not finished yet. A one-club legend of Leeds Rhinos, who has now crossed codes as a defence coach for Leicester Tigers, Kevin Sinfield is a rugby icon.Although I don’t follow rugby, I found Kevin’s insights and explanations of his rugby career fascinating. This fantastic book documents an incredibly selfless man and his growth as an individual and his recent stunning feats for Rob and many other affected by MND.

About the Author: Born in Oldham and known affectionately as 'Sir Kev', Kevin Sinfield retired in 2016 as an idol of the Leeds Rhinos' golden years and as a former England captain. A very British hero, the unassuming yet utterly superb Kevin Sinfield - rugby league great turned rugby union coach turned charity fundraiser, all while carrying a torch for the true meaning of sport and friendship. The plan for our fourth challenge, the '7 in 7 in 7 Challenge' is to run 7 ultra marathons in 7 cities in 7 days with an extra mile each day that will show our support for the MND community.The genius of Sinfield is not in his writing, which is good it lies within the thought processes that he portrays so well. The only reason I didn't feel I could give a 5 star rating is because having personally ran the Leeds Marathon myself - seeing Sinfield and Burrows run the marathon together and then Kevin carrying Rob over the finish line - this felt like a better and more fuller end to this chapter of Kevin's life so far.

The Extra Mile tells how Sinfield set about raising money to combat motor neurone disease, the appalling condition that has gripped his former Leeds Rhinos teammate and best pal, Rob Burrow. He regards a soft performance as one of rugby’s worst sins but there is no relentless smashing into each other in training.In Autumn 2020 Kevin Sinfield ‘just went for a run for a mate’ after his former Rugby League teammate Rob Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019. I brought my copy at one of Kevin’s book signings, he’s just as friendly in person as he comes across in the book! A year later he did the Ultra 7 in 7 – seven ultra marathons in seven days, Murrayfield to Old Trafford. Sinfield’s epic challenges have included running 7 ultra marathons in 7 days, and running over 101 miles in 24 hours. Like my mate Rob, Charlie has also shared his experiences of living with MND with the public to raise awareness of this awful disease.
