Izzie’s 400-Mile Walk over the Summer Holidays

Frank Klucznik’s daughter Izzie Klucznik plans to walk 400 miles to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND), in memory of her Nan Angie Klucznik. Money raised via Izzies JustGiving page will be donated to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

A message from Izzie:

In 2018 my Nan died of MND after being diagnosed in December 2015. I have experienced first hand what a cruel disease MND is and there was nothing anyone could do to help. I‘m 14 now and want to do this walk to raise as much money as I can to help find a cure. If I can make a little bit of difference and stop other families losing a loved one to MND, then every mile I walk will be worthwhile.

Doddie Weir is a real inspiration to myself and my family and we think what he is doing to raise the funds and awareness of MND is amazing.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Angie's Time at IAE

Angie started working alongside her husband David Klucznik in 1985, after seeing both Katie and Frank into primary school.

Working alongside her husband and the rest of the IAE team, Angie became an integral part, taking the position as company secretary. Specialising in the financial side and specifically accounts payable, setting standards and processes that IAE still work with to this day.

From 2000, Angie attended all the UK agricultural shows, offering hospitality and a friendly family face. Not only making refreshments and lunch for the IAE sales staff but also catering for more or less everyone else who visited the IAE stand. 

Throughout the process of relocating IAE operations to its purpose-built site at Mossfield Road Stoke on Trent, Angie played a key role behind the scenes in supporting her husband through these challenging and stressful times. 

Angie was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND) in December 2015 after undergoing multiple tests and sadly passed away just under 3 years later on the 13th September 2018.

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career, represented the British and Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997, and won championships with his two club sides, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons.

A talented, committed and athletic lock forward, Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

Doddie wants to help those touched by MND – be it fellow sufferers or their families having to deal with the daily consequences – with basic and practical relief, whether that be to help with mobility and transport needs, with care and respite, or access and basic living requirements.
