Michael's Knight of Sufferlandria Attempt
10 hours of high intensity cycling videos on a wind trainer to raise funds for Neurological Foundation.
To be awarded the highest honor accorded by the Sufferlandrian Ministry of Madness, one must simply do 10 Sufferfest videos, back-to-back.
But that suffering is nothing. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and motor neuron diseases, stroke, multiple sclerosis, migraine, epilepsy and traumatic brain injury are just a few of the wide spectrum of disorders that are the focus of the research funded by the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand. These disorders are brutal and uncompromising, and with the rapid growth of New Zealand’s ageing population, an epidemic of neurodegenerative disorders is predicted in the coming decades.
However, research carried out by New Zealand’s world-leading neuroscientists, and funded by the Neurological Foundation, has provided extraordinary insight into brain disease, and illustrates the global significance of the dedicated work being carried out in this country. Further, this work provides hope for the one in five New Zealanders who will be struck with a brain disorder in their lifetime.
My mother died of Motor Neuron Disease in 1997 - it’s a horrible, debilitating disease.
