Get involved as a young person
If you know someone with MND, there are ways to make a difference and have fun. If under 16, you need permission from a parent or guardian to join activities.
"You can do something positive, even when the situation seems as bad as it can get." Young person affected by MND

We have loads of fundraising activities that you could get involved in, from sponsored walks and marathons, to fun days or baking events. There may be events planned near you through one of our local branches or groups. Or you may have an idea of your own, or want to join a larger national event.
See our fundraising events page to find out more about the type of activities on offer.
Some events may be suitable for schools and colleges. We may be able to provide a Teacher and Youth Leader pack to help.
If you're over 16 and you'd like to help people living with MND get the support they need, you may enjoy becoming a young campaigner or young volunteer.
We have branches and groups across the UK who provide a warm welcome to families who'd like to get involved.
