L6ve Life Foundation
The L6ve Life Foundation was set up by Lee Newton.
Like many others, Lee had spent most of his life dedicated to his family, friends, career and playing sport, in particular, Rugby League. (In case you were wondering, the “6” in L6ve Life was Lee’s rugby league shirt number.)
On the 20th March 2013, at the age of 42, he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease. The shock of the initial diagnosis was almost unbearable but Lee resolved to do everything he could to fight this terrible disease.
Lee was blessed with a wonderful family and amazing friends. His wife Caroline, daughters Hannah and Evie, family and friends were all so very supportive and remained positive to help Lee to continue living life to the full.
Lee continued to thoroughly enjoy life – family holidays, fundraising, running his business, even skydiving. Lee was not one to give up.
Lee lost his personal battle with motor neurone disease in March 2017. But the fight goes on, and Lee would want us to continue. He always believed this is a fight we can win.
The L6ve Life Foundation has been set up to provide funds for those who, every day, fight to find a cure and to help those already living with MND.
