Event description

Description

A fund raising appeal for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) research. Come and get a nice and quick 30 minute workout while at the same contributing to the research of this terrible disease. Here are some facts:

  • 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

  • Prevalence of MND in 2015 was 8.7 per 100,000 people or 1 per 11,434 Australians

  • Approximately 58% of people with MND are under the age of 65

  • The total cost of MND in Australia was $2.37 billion in 2015. This equates to $1.1 million per person

  • For every person diagnosed with MND it is estimated that a further 14 members of their family and their friends will live with the effect of MND forever
