This weekend will see MND Scotland volunteers collecting at Tynecastle stadium.
MND Scotland provides care and support to everyone affected by Motor Neurone Disease. MND touches many in our society and football is not isolated from its effects and it doesn’t matter what team you support.
Here at Tynecastle, Hearts Director Robert Wilson suffers with the condition and yet plays his part in driving the revival of the club forward.
More recently it emerged that former Rangers hero Fernando Ricksen had been diagnosed with MND and an All Star match is currently being planned in Glasgow to raise funds and awareness.
Many of you would probably have taken the ice bucket challenge a few months ago, possibly unaware that it was inspired by those trying to raise funds for research into this dreadful disease but there is more you can do to help the many thousands who suffer.
