About
LEGACY

Have you ever wondered what you’re doing with your life? Whether you’re making the most of it? What mark are you going to leave on the world?

Well, Ian Davis and Scott Sullivan are forced to answer these questions.


Both are young men who have been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND), a disease with no known cause, no cure ,no effective treatment, and has a life expectancy of between two to five years. To describe MND in Ian’s own words (a Doctor), "MND is a progressive neurodegenerative affliction, a gradual imprisonment, where an accumulation of disability leads to a gradual but inevitable reduction in independence.”

This is the unbreakable spirit Ian and Scott carried with them as they set out on a One Million Metre ride (1000kms) to raise awareness of the disease and money for research into finding a cure for MND.

With a custom made tandem bicycle, one that has hand cranks to cater for Ian’s failing leg strength and foot pedals for Scott who's arms are loosing motor control, these two characters set out to build awareness for their often overlooked disease.

We hit the bitumen with Ian and Scott as they travelled down the east coast of Australia on their tandem bike, paralleling the difficult road that lies ahead of each of them. This tale will warm you to the core, not only because of Ian and Scott’s audacity but the generosity it evokes from the community around, knowing that there is still good to be done in the world.


Legacy is an inspiring tale of human courage in the face of the ultimate, making everyone confront those big questions that are so easy thrown to the back of our minds.

SCOTT SULLIVAN - MND CYCLIST


Scott is a 41 year old vibrant, fun-loving and energetic father of two young children (Abbey 7yo, Charlie 3yo). On October 22nd 2010 he was diagnosed with MND - a disease with no known cause, no cure, and no effective treatment. He was told his life expectancy was just 3-5 years. In spite of this tragic news his first thoughts were not only for his beautiful wife Sarah and his two kids, but also for other people living with MND. Scott's courage and drive to help others despite his illness is an inspiration to us all.

IAN DAVIS - MND CYCLIST


for many patients battling cancer. On the 13th of September 2011 at 5.45pm Ian was diagnosed with MND and told his life expectancy was 3-5 years. The devastating news has taken its toll, both in a gradual and ever evolving physical sense, but also on a highly personal level. Despite this, Ian is determined to push MND into the spotlight, and raise as much awareness and much needed funds to help find a cure to this cruel and relentless disease. Ian first met Scott a few months after his diagnosis with MND.
