Tony Mee embarks on a 2021 (x3) challenge in aid of the Huntington’s Disease Association (HDA).
Rovers’ head of Academy youth development phase has set himself a challenge to cycle 2,021 miles to raise £2,021 in 2021 – the 2021 x3 challenge. All money raised is going to support HDA – a charity which is close to Tony’s heart.
“In 2013, my wife Sally was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, a degenerative neurological condition similar to Parkinson’s Disease and described as having the worst aspects of MS, MND and dementia,” said Tony.
“Sally now needs total care which my daughters and I provide with the help of a personal assistant who comes in 24 hours per week.”
This is not the first time Tony has found innovative ways to fundraise for HDA. In 2020, he raised nearly £5,000 by donating a proportion of the profits from online coaching sessions and his book Through the Thirds.
“This year I’ve come up with 2021x3. I’m cycling 2,021 miles to raise £2,021 in 2021,” he added.
“As well as providing some personal motivation, I’m hoping to hit this target by our wedding anniversary in October. I’ve completed just over 500 miles so far.”
