Liane’s story

Founder of Challenging MND, Alex Gibson, who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in his mid thirties, 3 years ago, continues to challenge himself and face the adversity that his illness brings to his every day life.

Despite deteriorating mobility, Alex works out twice a day and is determined to keep embarking upon super human challenges to raise funds to support the MND community. Donations enable individuals living with MND ( average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 4 years), to partake in an activity/challenge of their choosing to make a lifelong memory. The charity also supports the individual and their family carer to maximise their quality of life, in the way that works for them.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

CHALLENGING MND

Challenging MND

The aim of Challenging MND is to provide financial support to sufferers of MND, to undertake any lasting memorable challenges or events with friends and family.

We aspire to create lifelong memories for people living with MND. Motor neurone disease is a cruel progressive disease that attacks the muscles in the body preventing them from working properly, but the mind stays strong. Therefore, we want to affect the here and now of our beneficiaries' lives and ensure we add quality experiences to their life. We are not a research-based charity and have no intention to be.

We also see raising awareness of MND as a major part of our work. As of today, there is still no cure and we see this as unacceptable. By providing awareness we hope to increase the odds of a cure being found sooner rather than later and help future generations.

Challenging MND is a registered charity in England and Wales. Charity number 1182607​.
