58-year-old Ian Flatt, who is living with MND, is taking on his most difficult challenge yet in his offroad wheelchair, The Tangerine Dream Machine. 

But he’s going to need some help...

Ian hopes to raise thousands for Leeds Hospitals Charity’s appeal to build the £6.8 million Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease in Leeds.

Ian’s challenge will begin on Saturday 15th June at Whernside in the Yorkshire Dales, the highest of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

He will climb Snowdon on Global MND Awareness Day, after scaling peaks in Wales and Scotland.

Ian will then return to Yorkshire for the final part of his challenge at Roseberry Topping - "The Yorkshire Matterhorn" on Sunday 7th July, coined Rob Burrow Day by Leeds Rhinos, reflecting Rob’s shirt number 7.

Along his journey, dozens of friends, family and members of the MND community will join Ian and his support team helping him with the physical and emotional impact a challenge of this magnitude will present.

Ian is hopeful that many others will be inspired by his challenge and will sign up to help him reach the top of these mountains.
