Soak A Scientist for MND Awareness


Following the motto “EveryAugustUntilACure”, SITraN PhD students Jodie Stephenson and Alejandro Lorente Pons organised a revival of last year’s Ice Bucket Challenge for Motor Neurone Disease (MND), also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). For a small donation towards MND research, visitors to Endcliffe Park in Sheffield had a chance to drench the scientists and find out about the research into Motor Neuron Disease (MND) at SITraN, as well as the charity work of the MND Association South Yorkshire branch. The team raised more than £600 in total which will go towards MND research. The event was covered in a radio interview with Jodie, Alejandro and Ann Quinn from the MND Association South Yorkshire branch by sheffieldlive (from 7:00 –20:13 mins).
