September is indeed a busy month for ex-England, Leeds and Manchester City footballer Danny Mills. Aside from joining the ‘Celebrity Masterchef 2012’, he’ll also complete the first Archie Mills Memorial challenge.
All to raise money for SHINE (which stands for Spina bifida, Hydrocephalus, Informatio, Networking, Equality),which is the only national charity organisation committed to helping individuals affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
Mills will race in memory of his son, whom he lost ten years ago to spina bifida.
He is expected to be joined by other cycling enthusiasts along the Leeds2London route, which is divided into 6 stages with destinations including Leeds, Doncaster, Newark, Stamford, St. Neots, Stevenage, and London.
Mills will also be appearing on the BBC hit show ‘Celebrity Masterchef’ starting September 3rd. The challenge is to out-cook other celebrity contestants to win the crown.
Asked about his dedication and commitment to SHINE, Mills responded: “It’s hard to explain how essential the work of SHINE is, what we went through in losing Archie was terrible, the advice and support from SHINE enabled us to cope at a time when all seemed lost.”
Another thing that will keep Mills busy this month is the promotion of Rebecca Morris’ celebrity cookbook.
Morris has debilitating form of hydrocephalus and has put together more than 20 celebrity recipes. Just like Mills, her goal for doing this is to create awareness and generate additional funds for the charity.
Mills said: “The book that Rebecca has put together is great example of how SHINE impacts the lives of its members, the support Rebecca received from SHINE enabled her to carry on, she then wanted to give something back and this book is top notch.”
