Who are FightMND?
Founded in 2014, FightMND was established with the purpose of finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure for Motor Neurone Disease. The horrible and debilitating disease gradually takes away the patient's use of their arms and legs, their ability to eat and swallow, their speech and ultimately their ability to breathe...all in an average timeframe of just 27 months.
Following on from last year’s theme, FightMND once again put out the call for the team to ‘Beanie On, Play On’ in 2022. With the key theme of resilience in mind, the FightMND army is encouraged to put their beanie on to show how they are ‘playing on' in the face of life’s adversities and challenges, especially after what has been a tough couple of years.
