Davy Zyw: 500 miles in four days and £150,000 for MND charity

2020 Fundraiser of the Year in association with Sports Tours International: Davy Zyw

This summer 32-year-old Scot Davy Zyw rode the North Coast 500 for charity — 500 miles around the coast of Scotland — in four days. Good going, you might think. Add to that the amount he raised: £150,000 and still rising. For a non-celebrity, that's pretty astonishing. But there's more. Zyw has motor neurone disease.

Receiving the devastating diagnosis two years ago was the catalyst for this challenge, which he rode in aid of the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. It's a charity set up by Scots former rugby player Doddie Weir after he was diagnosed with the condition three years ago, to aid awareness of and fund research into MND.
