Torbay Hospital worker Stephen Brown is off a gruelling bike ride in the name of charity.The health care assistant and cancer survivor, who works on the Simpson ward, is cycling from Dawlish to Headingley and the home of the Leeds Rhinos Rugby League club.The 290-mile cycle challenge starts on May 17 and is to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease research and former Rhinos legend Rob  Burrow who is living with the devastating illness.Stephen says: "I’m hoping to do this in five days unaided and self funding. I am hoping to raise £5,000 - that’s the number who have this disease."Originally from Leeds and with family still in the city, Stephen has followed closely the story of Burrow and the incredible work he has done to raise awareness of MND since going public with his diagnosis in 2019.
