Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. The 48-year-old earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career, represented the British and Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997, and won championships with his two club sides, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons.
A talented, committed and athletic lock forward, Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge.
In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neurone Disease.
From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.
In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, to help find a cure for MND and support those affected by the disease.
They have, to date, committed £1.4 million to research and to help people living with MND.
