The former Leeds Rhino star raised more than $1 million for the MND Association and Leeds Hospital Charity. This challenge was inspired by former teammate Rob Burrow, who was diagnosed with MND in 2019.
Part of the money will be used for new care facilities built under Burrow’s name.
“From the beginning, the support along the line was incredible. Of course it was a fight. We wanted a fight, and of course we got a fight,” Sinfield told the BBC after crossing the finish line.
“I broke. I don’t know when I can run again.
“Rob knows how much we love and care about him. For those very dark moments, you must think of Rob.”
‘Benefit every patient’
The 41-year-old Sinfield started his feat at Wellford Road Stadium on Monday. He is now the home of the Leicester Tigers, where he is now coaching and completed his feat at Headingley Stadium in Leeds 24 hours later. .
His run was divided into 7 kilometers (approximately 4.35 miles), and he had to complete it within an hour.
Sinfield initially set a goal of $133,000 (£100,000) in fundraising, but as he finished his campaign, the size of donations soared.
Burrow and his family waited at the finish line, and after the exhausted and emotional Sinfield crossed the finish line, the two hugged each other.
Burrow was diagnosed with a degenerative disease in December 2019 two years after his retirement.
MND may have deprived him of the ability to speak and act, but the spirit of Burrows inspired Sinfield to raise funds and raise awareness in his name.
In 2020, Sinfield raised more than $3 million after running seven marathons in seven days.
“Today is a great day for the entire community and will benefit every patient,” Burrow said on Tuesday.
“For my amazing friend Kev, you didn’t realize your impact on me and the entire MND community.”
