My brother was diagnosed with MND just a few months ago at the age of 21. I wanted to know if anyone has ever done fund raising on a large scale and raised awareness through television?

Hi Wendy,

Jaded John (a member of this forum) has done a lot recently to raise awareness of MND:

And then there is Patrick and Alistair who are fronting the MNDA campaigns:

In March five of us raised 5000 for the Oxford MNDA Branch by taking part in the Reading Half Marathon. No TV coverage but we did go on our local radio station BBC Radio Oxford:

The next event for us is a Halloween party where we are hoping to raise a few more thousand:
