On Monday 18th April, our Co-Founder sadly passed away after a brave battle with Motor Neurone Disease. Everyone was truly heartbroken. Chris was a fighter and a special man. He was and is an inspiration for so many. He was passionate about trying to help others affected by MND.
Since Chris was diagnosed in 2015, he made it his focus to do everything he could to have a positive impact on MND. He helped create the Facebook group, MND Warriors. The group brought people together who were diagnosed with MND, family members of someone with MND or a carer of someone with MND. It created a support network for those battling the disease.
Chris did all he could to raise awareness of MND, inspiring so many people. He gave strength to others who were diagnosed. He led the way in how to fight and battle MND. His motto was to “adapt and overcome.” Every hurdle and obstacle that the disease threw at Chris, he approached it head on and took the fight to MND. He was there in times of need for so many at their darkest and toughest times. Chris’s legacy lives on and he will forever be in our hearts. We will now do everything we can to continue his amazing work.
Next spring, on March 25, close to the first anniversary of his passing, we are inviting people to come together to remember Chris as we stage the Roads For Rimmer fundraising walk in his memory. Chris was a huge Liverpool supporter and so this 20 mile team walk starts and ends at his beloved Anfield. More information on the event and how to register your team can be found on the Redwood Events website.
Chris will be forever in our thoughts so lets get as many teams registered as possible and do him proud.
