Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.
My Name'5 Doddie Foundation was established by Doddie Weir and friends after he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. 
Doddie Weir is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He 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.


Please donate to support our cause.
The response to Doddie's diagnosis has been amazing - support has come from all quarters, especially following the launch of My Name'5 Doddie Foundation at Murrayfield in November 2017. Doddie's drive and energy is an inspiration and we appreciate all offers of help and support.
The Foundation's aims are simple:

To raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neurone Disease and investigate potential cures.

To make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
