Motor Neurone Disease Association

We fund care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from MND

Charity Registration No. 294354


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Following the success of our Sheffield Half Marathon for the Motor Neurone Disease Association in April we have decided to increase our ambition and quintouple our fundraising target to £1000 for this year's Great North Run!

We have decided to run in costume this time and will be building a homemade bobsled as we are running as the Jamaican Bobsled team from Cool Runnings!

We now have a project website, where you can follow our progress with photos and soon to be uploaded videos. Please visit us at

MND Association is a great charity to donate to so please donate whatever you can afford to and pass on this link to anyone else who will enjoy seeing 4 overambitious guys(idiots) running 13.1 miles in a  Bobsled!!

I will be building the bobsled in question over the next week or so and will post the photos of the build and the final design as soon as I have them.

The Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association is the only national organisation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland dedicated to the support of people with MND and those who care for them.

About the MND Association

The MND Association is a charity working to help people with MND secure the care and support they need, while promoting research into causes, treatments and a cure.

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
