Whitley Bay Dynamos IceFoot92 Challenge
On 12 September the under 15s Dynamos undertook the Icefoot92 challenge for their shirt sponsors, MND Association at Hillheads, the home of Whitley Bay FC.
So far they have raised over double their initial target, raising an incredible £515 as well as continuing to raise awareness with their kits.
One of the parents said they would sponsor the team, but rather than put their business logo on the shirts, decided to try and raise awareness of MNDA.
Steve Holland said, “It’s sad how many people actually do suffer with this. When my Mam had this and passed away around 10 years ago it wasn’t really heard of. It really is a terrible disease and having to live through it is horrendous. Now it seems more and more common (my uncle has also got it and is in a bad way now) so it was a no brainer for the shirt sponsorship to try and get more awareness and support behind the charity. Hopefully we can do some good fundraising over the season.”
