St George's Participates in Doddie Aid
St George's is participating in Doddie Aid 2023.
Doddie Aid is a virtual mass-participation exercise event founded by former Scotland captain, Rob Wainwright. It started on the 1st January of this year and will last for six weeks. Participants can do any type of exercise and the winning regional district (e.g., Edinburgh, Glasgow, North and Midlands, the South) will be the one with the most miles at the end. The event funds are being raised for My Name’5 Doddie Foundation which invests in research to find meaningful treatments for Motor Neuron Disease (MND).
St George's league currently has 97 participants. Collectively they've done 336 exercise sessions, covered 1,144 miles and raised £1,400!
