Fundraising for Motor Neurone Disease Association
Event: Beds Boundary Bash, 19-20 April 2019
Nick Kier from Mayfair Office members Lane & Holmes in Bedford will be part of a hardy group of runners who will be taking on a gruelling challenge over the Easter 2019 weekend – in an effort to tackle one of the world’s most terrible diseases. The “Bashing the Beds Boundary” event will see relay teams covering the entire 150-mile length of the Bedfordshire county border to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. The “Bash” will take place over the course of just 24 hours, with runners setting out on Good Friday and running through the night to finish (hopefully!) on the morning of Easter Saturday.
As well as the 150-mile race, runners of all abilities will be raising additional funds by taking part in a five-mile “final leg” run in the stunning setting of the Picts Hill House estate in Turvey – which will also provide the start and finish lines for the main event.
The race was dreamt up by Bedford-based marathon runner Rob Burrells whose sister Debbie has been raising money to fight Motor Neurone Disease since being diagnosed with the condition herself in 2018. Rob has teamed up with Nick Kier, founder of the St George’s Day Charity Fund (which has raised £565,000 for local charities since it was founded in 1992) in order to turn the dream into reality. Nick started Lane & Holmes Estate Agents in Bedford with Partner Andrew Willmer in 1985.
Even if you don’t feel up to tackling a 150-mile relay race yourself, we hope you will help us strive for a world free from Motor Neurone Disease. You can support and donate by clicking here. The event organisers are working entirely for free, meaning that every single penny you donate goes directly to the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
