Cycle to care, support, fight and cure Motor Neurone Disease at Pies to the Pacific 15 May 2021. Although MND is slowly stealing away part of my Dad’s body, his heart is stronger than ever and his fighting spirit is such an inspiration to us all 💙💙💙 Hope is greater than fear and the gift out of this challenge is the blessing of every moment we share together 🙏🏻

This is for you Dad and everyone who is fighting MND so they do not have to face it alone. If anyone would like to be involved in any way that would be amazing, I know for Dad having family, friends and support around means so much.

I'm doing this ride to become part of the solution to ensure no one has to face Motor Neurone Disease alone.

I know that the MND and Me Foundation does great work supporting both people with MND and their families while also funding critical research.

This is our chance to help them make a positive difference is the lives of people impacted by MND.

No donation is too small and any support you can provide is greatly appreciated.

What is Motor Neurone Disease?

You have nerves in your brain and spinal cord that control how your muscles work. These are called motor neurones. MND is a disease that affects the motor neurones. With MND, motor neurones gradually stop telling your muscles how to move. When muscles no longer move, they become weak, which can also lead to stiffness and loss of muscle mass (wasting). MND is a life-shortening illness that can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. This is usually different for each individual. You may not get all of the symptoms and there is no set order in which they happen. The disease will progress, which means symptoms will get worse over time. For some people this can be rapid, for others it is slower. There is currently no cure for MND.
