Research Motor Neurone (RMN) was founded in 2007, for the purpose of promoting and facilitating research into the causes and treatments of motor neurone disease (MND). RMN also strives to increase awareness of this incurable disease at both a national and international level.
The need for ongoing research is paramount to discovering the cause, treatment and methods of improving quality of life within MND sufferers and their families.
It is the generous support from all of our donors that helps us make progress in finding solutions for the benefit of those who suffer from this debilitating condition. A massive thank you to all the people who have donated to RMN in the past. It is through the fundraising endeavours of all our sponsors that essential funds are raised to support RMN and our ongoing vital research. Thank you all for your kindness and continued support.
