Old fart from H&FRFC to ride 100 miles for the Injured Players Foundation
Hammers’ Carl Evans will be taking part in the 100 mile Prudential RideLondon event on 4th August on behalf of the RFU Injured Players Foundation.
Players from the club have been helped directly by the Foundation and the club has been involved in raising funds for them over many years.
“I’m happy to raise money for the RFU Injured Players Foundation who do so much to help rugby players of all standards who have been injured playing the sport” says Carl. “Serious injuries are still few and far between given the number of people who play rugby but when they do happen they can be life changing for players and their families. The Foundation aims to help people in these circumstances and I have seen some of their work at first hand.”
Carl is looking for sponsorship and has set up an account with VirginGiving so its easy to donate:
The Injured Players Foundation is a charity that helps and supports rugby players who have suffered a catastrophic spinal cord or traumatic brain injury which has resulted in permanent disability whilst playing rugby in England. It supports players at all levels and all ages. You can see more about their activities and research at: www.rfuipf.org.uk
If you know other people who may be interested in supporting this charity do send my email on.
Thank you for your support.
