This year's Sydney Running Festival will have special meaning for Chloe Farley.

The 19-year-old will take part in the event on September 15 in a bid to raise funds for motor neurone disease (MND) research, an illness her grandmother Bev Grant was diagnosed with in 2016.

Bev is a local fighter. She has lived in Gloucester and Barrington her whole life and has always been active with her family and community.

Bev was certain she wouldn't meet her two newest great grandsons or see her grandson get married. Her true fighting spirit ensured she did.

Bev's family is driven to do what they can to raise funds and awareness to find effective treatment and ultimately a cure.

Each day in Australia, two people are diagnosed with MND.

MND is a progressive, terminal, neurological disease with no effective treatment and no known cure.
