Darby Rimmer MND Foundation was set up by former Bolton and Bradford player Stephen Darby who was forced into retirement after being diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease.

A 65 mile walk is raising money for charity in honour of former Bolton and Bradford player Stephen Darby.

Blackpool FC players got involved in the #StephenDarbyChallenge which has gained the attention and support of players and fans around the country.

Seasider's captian Jay Spearing took some of the squad to the Pleasure Beach and they all went on 'The Big One.'

The Blackpool captain was nominated by Bradford City FC, the club Darby spent most of his career.

Spearing has now challenged Rangers defender, Jon Flanagan, retired player Jason McAteer and current Crystal Palace defender Martin Kelly.
