A Thousand Miles proudly supports Fight MND. MND stands for Motor Neurone Disease. It is also known as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
It is a progressive disease which attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal chord. This ultimately leads to signals not reaching your muscles (which will eventually waste away). It can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink, breathe, and so on. It is a silent killer. THERE IS NO CURE.
