Every year since 1997, the MND community worldwide has marked 21st June as the global day of recognition of ALS/MND – a disease that affects people in every country of the globe.
21 June is a solstice – a turning point – and each year the ALS/MND community undertake a range of activities to express their hope that this day will be another turning point in the search for cause, treatment and cure of this awful disease.
Join us as we mark MND Global Awareness Day on 21st June. To help us raise awareness, one of our clients Andrew Brennan has bravely told his story of living with Motor Neurone Disease and will be the face of our national campaign this year. Keep a listen out for Andrew’s radio advert on national radio from 7th – 14th June and an eye out for his poster on Dublin Bus!
We want to share with people the real life impact of MND. The radio advert will convey the emotional and physical reality of receiving a diagnosis of MND. It tells the real life story of Andrew and his own personal experience of MND.
As well as being an awareness campaign this will also be a fundraising opportunity for the association and we will be asking people to ‘Drink Tea for MND’ in their local areas on or around the 21st June.
Andrew is 33 years old and soon he won’t be able to lift a cup of tea. Will you lift a cup for Andrew?
Everyone loves a cuppa especially in Ireland so why not organise an afternoon tea / coffee morning in your home, local pub, restaurant, GAA club, workplace, community centre, garden… anywhere in fact! We want as many people as possible drinking tea for MND throughout Global Awareness Month this June.
Tea packs, kindly sponsored by SuperValu, are available by emailing email@example.com or by calling the Fundraising Department on Freefone 1800 403 403. Order your Tea Pack today and let’s #DrinkTea4MND
