MND Scotland

MND BannerEvery step you take can take MND Scotland a step closer to a cure for Motor Neurone Disease.

The charity has places available for the biggest running events in Scotland, including Edinburgh Marathon, Stirling Marathon, and Loch Ness Marathon.

When you join #TeamMNDScotland you’ll receive a fundraising pack including your very own MND Scotland running vest or technical T-shirt, personalised sponsor forms, and training plans for the distance you’ll be running.

They’ll also be there to support you every step of the way.

MND Scotland is the only Scottish charity providing support to, and campaigning on behalf of, people affected by MND, as well as funding research into finding a cure.

MND is a rapidly progressing terminal illness, which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. This may cause someone to lose the ability to walk, eat, speak or breathe unaided. There is no cure for MND and the average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 14 months.

MND Scotland is here to support anyone who is affected by MND in Scotland. They offer a variety of services across the country, including; one-to-one counselling, benefits advice, complementary therapy, a loan of their communications equipment, support groups and more.

They also fund vital research, in Scotland, which is taking us a step closer to finding a cure for this devastating illness.
