About this deal

I would especially like to thank all the local authorities and councils who have given us their support; it means so much to everyone.

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. Union followers not familiar with Sinfield’s league career will learn plenty from his recently released autobiography, The Extra Mile, published by Century. There were some stories which scratched a surface and didn't delve much deeper which I would have liked but there was a lot to cram in I guess.

Biography: 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. In November 2017, Doddie and his trustees launched the registered charity, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.In 2021, Sinfield followed the 7 in 7 with The Extra Mile – 101 miles in 24 hours, Leicester to Leeds. Our key services include home visits by our 6 MND nurses, financial assistance towards home help and the supply of specialised equipment on loan. His aim was to provide a future for Rob's family and make governments and the money men be held accountable for broken promises and deafening silences. I wanted it to give them a glow inside that our team [he had two fellow runners for the Ultra 7] were willing to go through hell too.

Told with Sinfield’s characteristic warmth, dry wit and inspirational leadership, The Extra Mile is the story of an astonishing life, of an enduring friendship, of perseverance against the most difficult of challenges, and of a remarkable, humble human being who has defied the odds. Three other MND Charities will receive 6% of the money raised, ensuring that help and support reaches people with MND in other areas. Our bodies and minds are busted but as I’ve said before, what we’re going through is nothing compared to someone who is living with MND. Sinfield won seven Super League titles, three World Cup Challenges and two Challenge Cups in 521 matches for his club. His inspiring leadership and relentless focus on fundraising for MND shows how we should all strive to care more for each other' Gareth Southgate 'If you want inspiring, uplifting and empowering.

We’re doing this for the 5500 people living with MND in the UK and Republic of Ireland right now and every penny you can donate will make a huge difference. A rare memoir where his achievement that first made him famous (rugby), aren’t the majority of the book. He is the best of men ― The Telegraph --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Once the dreaded MND diagnosis was confirmed, Sinfield pledged to raise enough money to ensure Burrow’s family would be looked after and he set a deadline of the following Christmas. We felt so privileged yesterday in Brighton to have the opportunity to complete the Extra Mile alongside so many people living with MND. Century was founded in 1981 and immediately established itself as an exceptionally dynamic publisher of bestselling authors, a tradition continued to this day. Registered address: Give as you Live Ltd, 13 The Courtyard, Timothy's Bridge Road, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 9NP.

He was and is close friends with Rob Burrow from their time together at Leeds Rhinos to the present day and through that friendship has become recognised for far more than his sporting career. 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. Meeting with other sports stars suffering from MND he knew he had to do something to bring this currently terminal illness into the spotlight and keep it there. Like my mate Rob, Charlie has also shared his experiences of living with MND with the public to raise awareness of this awful disease. Sinfield's epic challenges have included running 7 ultra marathons in 7 days, and running over 101 miles in 24 hours.As my first autobiography that I am reading, I can only respect this man because he seriously ran over 60km everyday for a week straight and then went for a 101 mile marathon to fund enough money for his friend and all the other people affected by MND. It’s a must read, inspiring, thought provoking and overall a top read about a man’s career that has trod so many different paths.
