The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many community fundraising events and mass sporting challenges being cancelled or postponed. MNDA wanted to create an event to ensure existing fundraisers could still put their training to good use and continue their fundraising, whilst also allowing us to recruit new fundraisers to support the fight against MND at this difficult time. As a result we have developed a mass virtual challenge; Mission 5000.
Mission 5000 – the message
5,000 people with motor neurone disease. 5,000 miles to complete. A community uniting to cover the distance. How far will you go?
We expect to lose over £2 million this year due to the cancellation of community and sporting events as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But our fight against MND cannot be delayed. People affected by the disease need our support now, they need their voices heard today. People facing MND in the future need our vital research to continue. That’s why we’re on a mission, and we need you to join us.
Together we want to cover 5,000 miles, that’s a mile for every person living with MND in the UK today. Take part and run, walk, swim, cycle or even scoot however far you can. Every penny you raise will bring us closer to achieving our ultimate mission, a world free from MND.
Mission 5000 – more info
Challenge runs from Sunday 13 September to Sunday 18 October. Participants can cover their pledged miles on one day, week or over the whole 5 week period.

Participants can cover miles using any discipline they choose, alone or as part of a team. This isn’t just a running challenge and we’d love to see whole families taking part together 🙂
