Barrovians will have another chance to keep themselves active and raise money for charity at the same time this month, thanks to the ‘Jog in June’ initiative.

Raising money for the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, it follows the successful ‘100k in May’ from last month, with a Just Giving page set up by footballer Georgia Stanway, her father Paul and rugby league player Olly Ashall-Bott raising over £6,500 alone.

As part of ‘Jog in June’ people have been set a variety of targets to meet this month through running, swimming cycling or walking, starting with the ‘bronze’ challenge of 100km.

‘Silver’ requires a distance of 200km, ‘gold’ 300km and the those taking part in the ‘platinum’ challenge, mostly keen cyclists and professional runners, will need to reach 500km.

The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation was set up by former footballer Stephen Darby and Forces veteran Chris Rimmer, who both suffer with Motor Neurone Disease.

The cause is close to the heart of Paul Stanway, who lost close friend Pete Fell to the disease last year.

He said: “We found that for people who regularly exercise or were using their bike, doing 100k in a month was really achievable, so we kind of devised a little structure that would challenge everybody, no matter what level of activity they were capable of doing. We've set a team challenge and a few different exercises."
