What inspired you to get involved with The Lewis Moody Foundation?
Brain tumours are the biggest killer of people under the age of 40 in the UK”; I was completely oblivious to this shocking statistic, there wasn’t and still isn’t enough attention focused on the problem. I wanted to help raise the profile.
I had been lucky enough to meet Lewis during preparation for England’s World Cup efforts and had always been an admirer of his humility and passion for his country. To see him commit so much of his time to The Foundation, to see him applying those same values to the research into tackling brain tumours, and also hearing the moving stories of some of the incredible individuals living with tumours inspired me to help.
What’s your proudest moment at The Foundation?
I don’t think about my moments, it’s not about me, but I am proud of the achievements of every single individual who has given their all to complete the challenges, and of their efforts to raise so much for The Foundation in just a few short years.
What’s on your bucket list?
I would dearly love to see hundreds of people on the start line of a challenge with all the funds raised going to The Lewis Moody Foundation. If you have any ideas and you can help, give me a call.
