As part of our 20th birthday celebrations GGR Group is proud to supporting the Racing 4 MND charity and Heaton Ellis Trust who tirelessly raise money for research into Motor Neurone Disease. The latest Racing 4 MND challenge is to cycle from Silverstone to Le Mans in just 24 hours!
Racing 4 MND was set up by Neil Cunningham, a former professional racing driver and stunt driver who appeared at Top Gear Live and on the James Bond movie “Quantum of Solace”. Neil was forced to give up his career in 2010 when he was diagnosed with the debilitating condition Motor Neurone Disease.
In partnership with the Heaton Ellis Trust, the funds that Neil raises will fund research that is determined to find a cure for MND. Professor Christopher Shaw has made finding a cure for the disease his life’s work, he is based at Kings College London and his work also advances research into Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
Neil has organised a number of racing and sports events to raise money for the charity which GGR Group has always supported. The 24hrs to Le Mans challenge will take place in June of this year and promises to be a huge success.
