The final leg of his challenge saw Kev take on 38 miles from the University of Bradford Stadium to Halifax, Saddleworth, Failsworth and Deansgate in Manchester before finishing on the Old Trafford pitch during half-time of Australia and Samoa.
World Cup chief Jon Dutton has been one of several high-profile faces to have joined Sinfield on his fundraising journey, alongside his friends and team mates Jamie Peacock and Jamie Jones-Buchanan.
Kevin Sinfield’s Ultra 7 in 7 Challenge will mainly benefit the MND Association and Leeds Hospitals Charity’s appeal to build the Rob Burrow Centre for MND in Leeds.
Several other charities are also being supported, including MND Scotland, My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation and The 4ED campaign in support of former Gloucester and Leicester rugby player Ed Slater, who was also recently diagnosed with the disease.
