Motor Neurone Disease stops the nerve cells that control the body’s movement from sending messages to muscles. MND is often rapid and always fatal. There is no known cure.
As the disease progresses, the person will lose their ability to walk, talk and feed themselves, although their mind usually remains unaffected. They will eventually lose the ability to breathe unaided. The average life expectancy is just 20 months from diagnosis. On average almost 200 people are diagnosed each year in Scotland, 53% die within one year of diagnosis and 6.5% live for more than 5 years after diagnosis.* There are over 450 people in Scotland currently living with MND.
*data from the Scottish MND Register 2015 and 2016
We are the leading charity in Scotland providing care and support for people with MND and their carers, while also funding research into the disease. Everyone with MND in Scotland receives direct care from our team of Care Specialists who also ensure that our information and support services can be accessed after diagnosis and throughout the progression of the disease.
We provide direct support to people with MND and their families, through the loan of specialist equipment such as electronic communication aids for people who can no longer speak, financial support, information, advice, and professional counselling for people affected by MND and relatives bereaved by the loss of someone to MND.
We have guaranteed places, so please run for us and help to make a real difference to the lives of people living in Scotland with MND.
All our runners will receive:
• An MND Scotland running vest or T shirt
• A fundraising pack
