Raising awareness is a vital part of the Association. See below for details of our current and previous awareness campaigns over the last two years.
#TakeOverMND / The Ride
Imagine a terrifying rollercoaster ride where every turn and loop brings you closer to death and you can't get off. That is the theme of our latest campaign. We portrayed the devastating effects of motor neurone disease as a rollercoaster ride and showed how it takes over lives in our film 'The Ride'.
We encouraged people to share the video and to include the hashtag #TakeOverMND in support.

If your eyes were all you could move, what would you say with them? That's the question we asked in our 2017 campaign - #MyEyesSay. Throughout June we shared the experiences of people living with and affected by MND.
We encouraged supporters to get involved by taking a ‘selfie’ and sharing their message through social media using the #MyEyesSay tag. These became part of a collage on the #MyEyesSay campaign website.
Shortened Stories (2016)
For our 2016 campaign 'Shortened Stories' we worked with those affected by the disease, artists and filmmakers to bring to life three stories that have been or will be cut short by MND.
