Lorraine Kelly’s team tops Doddie Aid table at half-way point

DODDIE Aid 2022 participants have passed the one million miles in the first three weeks.

Doddie Aid is a mass participation event, encouraging everyone to get active in January and raise funds to help find a cure for Motor Neuron Disease.

It was founded by former Scotland captain and British and Irish Lion, Rob Wainwright.

The event splits participants into five districts, with the winning district being the one which covers the furthest distance over the duration of the event.

So far this year 17,001 people have signed up and Team North and Midlands which has 4712 members and is captained by TV star Lorraine Kelly leads the way with 322,367 miles.

Team South’s 3342 members who are co-captained by Sammi Kinghorn and Greig Laidlaw have completed 245,691 miles.
