MND

Not only are we passionate about bikes, we are also very passionate about fundraising and awareness of Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This is a very personal issue for me as my Mum was diagnosed with this terminal disease in 2016. We have a range of MND Victoria merchandise available for purchase in store with every single dollar going towards research into new treatments (and hopefully one day a cure) and care for those affected.

If you are not familiar with MND, below are a few statistics into this horrible disease.

  • MND is a progressive, terminal neurological disease
  • MND can strike anyone
  • There is no known cure and no effective treatment for MND 
  • Each day in Australia two people die from MND 
  • Each day in Australia two people are diagnosed with MND 
  • People with MND progressively lose the use of their limbs and ability to speak, swallow and breathe, whilst their mind and senses usually remain intact
  • Average life expectancy is 2.5 years
  • More than 2,000 people have MND in Australia of whom 60% are male and 40% are female 
  • Mean time from onset to confirmation of diagnosis is 10 to 18 months

We will be regularly holding fundraising events to raise money to help in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease. Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for any upcoming events.
