Dawn Thomas Kilimanjaro Challenge


Motor Neurone Disease Association

Starting on 28th June, Dawn Thomas will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease Association as she delivers on a promise she made after her husband Mike died from the disease. Mike was well-known, respected and loved throughout the Guernsey football community for his dedicated voluntary involvement with both Guernsey FA and Guernsey FC over numerous years.

Dawn, herself a valued volunteer for both the GFA and GFC, reflected on her decision to undertake this challenge and commented that:

‘I always said after Mike died that I would do a fund raising challenge for MNDA that would challenge me as much as getting out of bed and getting dressed was for Mike at the end.  Those of you that know me will appreciate that my hate for heights and the fact I am so bad at climbing up and down due to dodgy knees means I am not undertaking this lightly. MND is a terminal illness,  is affecting more and more people, and is not as rare as people think. It is so important that money is put into research so that we can understand more about it and find a cure. Thank you for supporting me doing this in memory of Mike’

The Motor Neurone Disease Association (Motor Neurone Disease Association ) funds care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from MND and is in need of urgent funds to continue research into finding a cure for this disease.
