PIB Insurance Brokers CEO takes on 10km charity walk for MND Research

Leeds, 15th May 2023: PIB Insurance Brokers CEO Steve Redgwell is set to embark on a 10km walk from Headingley Stadium to Leeds to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) research. Steve is an MND sufferer, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Despite his condition, Steve is determined to make a difference and raise awareness of the disease.

The charity walk, which will take place on 3rd June, will raise funds for Challenging MND, a charity that provides financial support and assistance to those living with Motor Neurone Disease to complete any lasting memorable challenges or experiences, and for The Francis Crick Institute to support research into finding a cure for MND.

Steve has already completed a similar walk, in London last year, which raised almost £140,000. This has been transformative for Challenging MND as it has enabled them to increase their support from one family a month to as many as five families a week.

Speaking about his motivation for taking on the challenge, Steve said, “Living with MND is incredibly tough, but I want to use my experience to make a difference and help find a cure for this devastating disease. I’m grateful for the support I’ve received from PIB and the wider community, and I’m determined to raise as much money and awareness as possible.”

The PIB Insurance Brokers team is fully behind Steve’s efforts and will be joining him on the walk. “We are incredibly proud of Steve and his determination to raise funds and awareness for MND research,” said Brendan McManus, CEO of PIB Group. “We are fully behind him and will do all we can to support him in his efforts.”

The walk is part of a wider fundraising campaign by PIB Group, which is also supporting the event through the PIB Community Trust. The company is also encouraging its staff to get involved in fundraising activities and many of Steve’s colleagues, friends and family will be joining the walk.
