Latest Challenge

Motor Neurone Disease

PC Consultants Motor Neurone Disease Challenge

01 June 21 – 30 June 21

Target distance: 4,000km

This month's charity is the Isle of Wight Motor Neurone Disease Association. They provide support to people and their families on the IOW living with MND. This can be emotional or financial support. Life expectancy can be as little as two years so having local funds available to provide immediate support is paramount to the branch. Each person with MND has different needs during their illness so the funds could help install a wet-room or stairlift or just something as simple as a bird table so that a person can look into the garden and watch nature.
