The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on MND care, research and campaigning.

MND is a progressive neuro-degenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones. Degeneration of these motor neurones leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

The MNDA supports families and sufferers by providing equipment such as Lightwriters, adapted chairs etc. to enable those with the disease to maintain an independent life as far as is possible, and to ease some of the symptoms where this can be done. They also fund important research into the disease, in the hope of one day ridding the world of this cruel disease.

The MNDA will receive 75% of sponsorship funds.
