Watch Your Back MND was officially unveiled to the world at the MND Research Gala Dinner at the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin last week. Roy was joined by some familiar faces to launch Watch Your Back MND including Scottish rugby legend Doddie Weir, Irish rugby legends Keith Wood and Donncha O’Callaghan and Irish music legend Finbar Furey. Music on the night was by the amazing After Dark band. Craig Doyle was compere for the night’s proceedings to make it a magical night to kick off our new initiative to kick MND in the ass!
Undisputed World Lightweight Boxing Champion Katie Taylor donated her fight worn gloves to auction at the event. The gloves raised a staggering €5,000 towards the Watch Your Back MND campaign. From the launch, Watch Your Back MND has raised over €10,000. A great start to an exciting campaign ahead!
