WHAT IS MND
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive, terminal neurological disease. There is no known treatment or cure. Each day, in Australia, two or more people die from MND and more than two people are diagnosed with MND.
All donations go to Macquarie University which houses Australia’s largest MND research facility. Currently Macquarie University employs 70 researchers and 12 clinicians involved in the research effort to end MND.
ABOUT THE CLIMB
On 9 November 2019, hundreds of firefighters from around the world are climbing a whopping 1504 stairs wearing 25kg of firefighters kit in the Sydney Tower Eye in an effort to raise much needed funds for research into Motor Neurone Disease at Macquarie University.
Funds raised will support the Macquarie University MND research Centre, the largest MND research centre in Australia. Since 2015, firefighters have raised over $2,000,000 as part of the Firefighters Climb for MND which will go towards finding a breakthrough in Motor Neurone Disease research.
