Story

In Autumn 2011 our Mum sadly passed away after battling with MND for 2 years. In that time she passed from being the amazing, bubbly, fun loving Mum we grew up with to what she described as a "smiling, dribbling quadraplegic!" She never lost her amazing personality, but the disease cruely took away; first her movement  and then her favourite past time, singing. To know more about how MND affects you, please watch the following video.

In light of this the three brothers are running the London Marathon in 2014. It will be a great experience to honour her memory together. In doing so we hope to raise enough money to support a family who are going through what we experienced, by providing care, aid and hopefully one day a cure. 

The MNDA is the first step in doing just that by directly helping families. 

Thank you. 

Harry, Joseph and Freddie.
