Kevin and his team were inspired by Rob Burrow and his family who have bravely shared an insight into their experiences with MND. Sadly, Rob and his family are one of thousands of families affected by this cruel disease. There are approximately 5000 people in the UK living with MND and we need to continue to be there for these people and their families and carers.
The awareness raised for MND throughout this challenge has been incredible and we have been inspired by the efforts of Kevin, his team and those who supported him. But the journey doesn't stop here, the need is greater than ever and you can be part of the 7 in 7 legacy by creating and taking part in your very own 7 in 7 challenge for the MND Association. Sign up for your own 7 in 7 challenge and help us to continue our fight for a world free from MND.
Through your support we have already raised over £2.5 million more than our original target of £77,777 from 115,000 supporters generously giving their backing to the 7 in 7 Challenge. We have some exciting news for the next step in our fundraising effort. The page is now a fundraising page which means that all future donations can now benefit from Gift Aid. Gift Aid is a tax relief allowing UK charities to reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer meaning even more money can be raised to help the MND community through the work of the MND Association.
We have been overwhelmed following the epic 7 in 7 Challenge in honour of Rob Burrow and the MND Association. Thank you for joining Team MND and generously sponsoring our team. We look forward to sharing with you how this incredible amount will be spent as we work with Kevin and use the money you raised to make a difference to the lives of those affected by MND.
