Sponsored Silence – February 2020

Sometimes Silence Speaks Volumes

Take part in our Sponsored Silence – February 2020

Imagine an hour…a day….a week without speech. Imagine not being able to say ‘I love you’ on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately that is the reality for approximately 80% of people living with Motor Neurone Disease.

Every February we ask people to take on a sponsored silence to experience what life is like for someone living with MND.  How would you cope not being able to communicate?

Just pick a day, time and location where you will take on your sponsored silence and then contact us on or 1800 403 403 for your Sponsored Silence Pack.

Help us spread awareness by sharing your sponsored silence on social media using #Voice4MND or change your profile picture to you holding our banner, which can be found here .  Nominate friends and families to join you – get your school or work colleagues to take part.

Nominate friends and families to join you. Sometimes silence can speak volumes.

A huge thank you to our Sponsored Silence Ambassador, Valerie O’Carroll. Valerie was diagnosed with MND in October 2019.
