Through 2020 ASure Financial Director Andrew Smith will be attempting to cycle a total of 5000 miles to raise money for much needed research required to find a cure for the critical illness Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
MND describes a group of diseases that affect the nerves (motor neurones) in the brain and spinal cord that tell your muscles what to do. With MND, messages from the motor neurones gradually stop reaching the muscles. This leads the muscles to weaken, stiffen and waste. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. MND is life-shortening and there is no cure. (Motor Neurone Disease Association, 2020)
Over the coming weeks and months ASure will be posting regular updates on Andrew's progress and also providing details of how you can support this challenge. Good luck Andrew!
