We are a team raising aiming to raise £10,000 for the Sheffield Institute for Translational Research (SITraN) and Motor Neurone Disease Association. Both charities are leading lights in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease (MND), a cause which is close to the hearts of many team members.
SITraN is a world leading centre for research into neurodegenerative disorders including MND, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and spinal muscular atrophy. Based at the University of Sheffield and opened by HM the Queen in 2010 SITraN has a vision to turn ground breaking research into real patient benefit.
The MND Association is the UKs national charity focused on MND through campaigning, research funding and a network of local branches. Money raised will go to the South Yorkshire branch which is run by a friendly group of volunteers offering essential support to patients, carers and their families with regular meetings, awareness and fundraising events.
