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 fundraising@imnda.ie 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.
