About MotorOn

MotorOn was established in 2015 by a group of friends rallying together to show their support for a courageous young friend, and mother of two small children, who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in 2012.

MND is a progressive, terminal neurological disease with no known treatment or cure. Every day two people in Australia die from MND, while another two are told they have this devastating disease.

To date, MotorOn has raised over $700,000 for vital MND research. 100% of all money raised goes to the Macquarie University MND Research Centre, Australia's largest MND research facility. It currently employs 70 researchers and 12 clinicians who are all dedicated and passionate about finding a cure, but they need our help.

MotorOn raises money for MND research, demonstrating our love, support and admiration for friends and family fighting this awful disease. Never underestimate the power of friendship.
