Coast to Coast Cycle Review – May 2014

In May, MND Scotland were once again supported by the annual Coast to Coast cycle which is undertaken by a group of colleagues from BP in Aberdeen. Over the last 6 years the incredible success of this event, and the huge amount of fundraising by the riders, has contributed around £250,000.00 to MND Scotland.   A massive thank you goes to everyone who was involved, and one of the organisers, Jon Turnbull,… read more »

A ‘Beat the Pro’ competition took place at the 7th hole against Gordon Sherry, whilst… read more »

Take The Plunge for Motor Neurone Disease – update!

  Wow.  We’ve had an incredible response to our Shark Dive event – so much so that we’ve had to open up a whole new day of diving… and we’ve only got one place left on that day.  However, if sharks aren’t *quite* your thing, we’ve got a whole host of other ways that you can become part of the group of people that have decided to Take The Plunge for… read more »

Aberdeen Firewalk – Urgent!

We’re urgently looking for more participants for this event – taking place on Friday 23rd March at Pittodrie Stadium.   Last year over £15,000 was raised by a wonderful group of fundraisers who – after a full training session – successfully crossed 20ft of burning embers hot enough to melt aluminium.   It’s an amazing experience (our fundraising staff have all taken part and can personally vouch for this!) and… read more »
