Weʼre raising £500 to raise awareness of Motor Neuron Disease & raise money for the Shane McMahon Beneficiary Fund.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On the 5th May 2019, I plan to run the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon along with my brother Mícheál. Not only will it be our first ever marathon but we are hoping to use this event to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and to raise some money for our cousin via the Shane McMahon Beneficiary Fund. Shane was diagnosed with MND in October 2017. He and his wife Roslyn have two beautiful children, Clarke (3) and Libby (8 months). With such a young family they have to face the demanding challenges this condition presents.
MND is an uncommon condition that affects the brain and nerves. It causes weakness that gets worse over time. The most common type of MND is called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease. While there is currently no cure for this condition, symptoms can be managed to help the person achieve the best possible quality of life.
Your support can really make a difference and would be truly appreciated. Money raised for this fund will be used to support Shane for his future medical care costs; medical equipment costs; and home modification and adaptation costs.
Thank you so much. Alison and Mícheál
