My Name'5 Doddie Foundation

My Name'5 Doddie Foundation was established by Doddie Weir and trusted friends after he was diagnosed with motor neuron disease. It raises funds to aid research into MND, to investigate meaningful treatments and fund a cure. It also supports patients and families living with MND to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.

About us

Doddie's positive approach to life and boundless energy inspires us every day. We are determined to do all we can to help raise the profile of MND, fund research into this awful disease and work towards finding meaningful treatments and a cure. Our Scientific Advisory Board meets regularly to help us determine where to invest our funds in research projects. We continue to challenge the medical community. In addition, we give grant support to dozens of people who are living with MND to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible, these are administered by our friends at MND Scotland and MND Association. Our Dodcasts allow people to hear how Doddie is coping with motor neuron disease and are a way of connecting with others in the MND community and our supporters. We want to be part of the cure.
