Why I am going to New York

Scott Sullivan was in his late 30’s and a Father of two working in a Management role with Suncorp (Group) when he was struck down by MND. Rather than sitting back waiting to die, he established the MND and ME foundation to raise funds to support sufferers and their families,  and to join the fight to search for a cure, a cure that would never be found in time to help him.

Over the 3 years prior to his passing, Scott worked full time generating awareness of MND and raising over $3 million to create the MND Centre and Fund to research for a cure.

We now continue to help his legacy, find a cure and support those who have the disease and their families.

MND is a disease that is non-discriminatory. It cares not for age or gender, how much or little you have or the work you do. It cares not for ethnicity. There is one certain outcome - death.

My trip to New York to run the Marathon is motivated by raising funds for the Foundation and ultimately to contribute to no other children losing a parent to MND. I ask for your support by way of a donation made by clicking on the link below.
