Have you ever thought about what you’re doing with your life?.... Thought about whether you’re making the most of it?.... Or thought about the end....when your time finally comes?.... Ever Wondered what sort of mark you were going to leave on the world and what sort of Legacy you'd leave for your family?... Well Ian Davis and Scott Sullivan are forced to answer these questions daily.
Both are young men diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (MND/ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease)...... a disease with no known cause, no cure ,no effective treatment, and which has an average life expectancy of only 27 months. To describe MND in Ian’s own words (a Doctor himself), "MND is a progressive neurodegenerative affliction, a gradual imprisonment, where an accumulation of disability leads to a gradual but inevitable reduction in independence.”
In May 2013, these 2 courageous characters denied the odds and set out to "Conquer" MND in their own personal and individual ways by cycling 1 million meters for MND from Brisbane to Sydney, Australia over 16 amazing days. Each utilised their remaining strength at the time.... one cycling with his still functional legs, the other with his still functional arms.... together cycling as one whole man again. MND could not stop these amazing men.....
These incredibly inspirational and amazing days have been captured on film and immortalised in amazing cinematic content, all with the aim of allowing both Ian and Scott the opportunity to leave a lasting memory and a "Legacy" on this world that will hopefully speak to not only all those in the general public who see the footage,but also provide an inspiration for those currently affected with this disease and those diagnosed in the future....
Come with Ian and Scott and help push MND/ALS into the limelight.... We need your help to finish this film.
