On April 26th the staff of New Horizons will embark on their annual charity hike, which this year is in aid of the IMNDA. We hike to the top of Threerock mountain and back down again.
So please give generously for this great cause and we will see you out on the mountain!
The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only support organisation in Ireland for people with MND; their families, friends and carers. Motor Neurone Disease (also called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis – ALS) is a neurological condition that does not discriminate, striking people of all ages. There is currently no treatment or cure. The damage caused by MND is progressive so it gets worse over time. On average one person dies every four days from MND in Ireland and the majority of people die within 1,000 days of being diagnosed.
The IMNDA cannot slow the progression of MND or change the outcome but we can alleviate the feelings of isolation and improve quality of life. We strive to ensure that each individual receives the care and support they require enabling them to live as active independent citizens in their own homes for as long as possible. Our services include home visits by our two MND Nurses, financial assistance towards home care, provision of specialised medical equipment, funding counselling and funding towards MND Research.
