What is MND?

Motor Neuron Diseases (MNDs), also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy motor neurons, the cells that control skeletal muscle activity such as walking, breathing, speaking and swallowing.

March for MND24 in 2022
took on 44 Events in 21 Countries

An incredible show of support in our first year. Unfortunately, we also had many events cancelled last minute due to the issues we have all faced around the Covid-19 pandemic.


Unofficial World Record in Cuba, where Salsa Dancers performed for 24 hours and 24 minutes.

South Africa

Ex-Springbok and Natal Shark legend John Allan led the way with mountain biking and golf in Durban; we had 24 dune buggies driving through the beautiful Western Cape in Cape Town; and two talented ladies knitted for 24 hours to make blankets for babies in ICU, proving that any 24-hour activity is possible!

United Arab emirates

MND24’s founder Sandy Stirling led a team of cyclists on a 24-hour cycle around Dubai’s Al Qudra desert, clocking up a whopping 586 kilometers, where more than 250 supporters came to cheer the riders on in their challenge.

In MND24’s founding city of Dubai, many companies took the opportunity to enjoy a little team bonding after Covid-19 social distancing restrictions were lifted, organising fundraising cooking, pool, beach volleyball, sailing, paddle tennis, training, running and foosball events. It was fantastic to see so many kids getting involved with the cause, playing football, rugby and paddle boarding around the Burj Al Arab to raise awareness for the cause.

Other events included surfing (Scotland), walking (Germany and Ireland), Netflix-watching (Hong Kong), trekking (Bali), spinning (USA), skiing (France) running (Monaco and Saudi Arabia), golf (Australia, Portugal and Spain), handball (France), rugby (Singapore and England), cocktail making (Turks and Caicos), cycling (Australia and Scotland) and music playing (Scotland).

It really can be any activity, done anywhere, highlighted most poignantly by the lady who undertook 24 hours of silence in her own home, in support of her mum, who had MND and lost the ability to speak. It’s really as simple as that.

Why should I be part of MND24’s Mission?

Raise awareness and vital funds for research into Motor Neuron Disease and care for those living with MND.

Collectively move us closer to our goal of helping find a cure for a disease that is hard to diagnose, impossible to predict and is currently incurable.
