Story

Last year my dad, Colin, was diagnosed with MND. That's us in the picture at the top of the page. To help raise some money for the MND Association NI, I'm running the Royal Parks Half Marathon. I'm also throwing a bake sale!

Every donation, however big or small, is really appreciated and all goes directly to the Motor Neurone Disease Association NI. Thank you xo

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. Although there is currently no cure for MND, symptoms can be managed to help you achieve the best possible quality of life. We need your support. £120 could provide an overbed table, making it easier for someone with MND to eat, drink and read safely and comfortably in bed. £230 could fund the coordination of care for someone with MND at a Care Centre for a year. £500 could provide a tablet device with specialist communication software, allowing someone to communicate with loved ones. £750 could fund an MND expert researcher for a week.
