Global ALS/MND Awareness Day

Global ALS/MND Awareness Day is an annual event dedicated to raising awareness about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) in some regions. It typically falls on June 21st each year. The aim of this day is to educate the public about ALS/MND, raise funds for research and support services, and advocate for improved care and resources for individuals living with the disease and their families. ALS/MND is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, leading to muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately respiratory failure. Global ALS/MND Awareness Day serves as an opportunity to highlight the challenges faced by those affected by the disease and to promote efforts to find effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure.
