    Weʼve raised £560 to Challenging MND

    Funded on Tuesday, 10th September 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Our Story

    Six people per day are diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND), with most people being given a prognosis of 2-3 years.

    Inspired by Alex Gibson who was diagnosed in 2018, CHALLENGING MND was set up with the mission to provide financial support and assistance to those living with MND, to complete any lasting memorable challenges.MND is a debilitating progressive disease which involves degeneration of the motor neurones and wasting of muscles.Throughout the deterioration of the functioning of the body, the mind remains sharp and unaffected, making the importance of memorable occasions invaluable.

    How we help

    Whilst most Motor Neurone Disease (MND) charities admirably raise money for much needed medical research, Challenging MND sets out to create memorable challenges for people living with MND, giving them; their friends; and families; lifelong memories that can never be taken away. Our aim is to ensure that there are no obstacles, whether it be financial or training equipment, preventing these amazing challenges from happening. Please get in touch if you know of someone or have been diagnosed with MND yourself and require assistance with any long lasting memorable challenge.


    To raise funds for the challenge MND charity I and 17 other intrepid walker/cyclists will over 4 days walk up the UK national 3 peaks (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) and also cycle between them some 550 miles all being well and not getting lost. I am personally doing this to support a a worthwhile cause that will provide memories to MND suffers who may not have the financial means.

    I enjoy cycling and the occasional run and swim but have never cycled 550 miles, so this will be a real challenge for me.
