Running for Motor Neurone Disease
Inspired by the efforts and commitment of their supporters, Euan MacDonald Centre staff have decided to do some fundraising of their own by taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival on 26th May 2013.
University of Edinburgh research and support staff, including Chloe Kippen, Denise Cranley, Graham Campbell, Heather Anderson, Jenni Stewart, Jenny Durkin, Leisa Thomas, Richard Perry, Shuna Colville, Shyamanga Borooah, Steph Hay and Vicky Olver, hope to raise at least £2000 to help take the Euan MacDonald Centre another step further towards a better understanding of motor neurone disease.
About Motor Neurone Disease
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a debilitating disease that leads to muscle weakness, paralysis and sadly is usually fatal within a few years. The Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research is committed to defeating this devastating disease through fundamental innovative research.

Dance the night away
University Staff are also raising money in aid of the Euan MacDonald Centre by organising a charity night of ceilidh dancing and traditional Scottish fare.
Please join us for an evening of eating, dancing and general merriment on Friday 31st May 2013 at the Debating Hall, Teviot Row House.
Tickets cost £7.50 each and we ask you to consider donating an additional £7.50 for the Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research per ticket. Please note that choosing not to donate will not affect your right to attend the ceilidh.
