Former Liverpool, Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers footballer Stephen Darby and close friend and former British Forces Veteran Chris Rimmer partnered together to launch the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.

Stephen and Chris both have Motor Neurone Disease and have created a Foundation to create awareness of MND, to fund and assist research into the illness with the quest of finding a cure for the illness, to raise funds and offer grants to those with MND, as well as creating a network to help provide information and emotional support network for those diagnosed with the disease.
