Celebrate Life


Motor Neuron Disease (ALS)

Every year, International Handstand Day is dedicated to particular person, cause or event that promotes the betterment of our world.

This year, we are elated to partner with a very unique artist, the late Rose Finn-Kelcey. Her diverse works are incredibly well known but one self-portrait captures the spirit of the handstand and the exuberance of life.

Her self-portrait, entitled “The Restless Image”, captures what all of us feel when we’re doing something spontaneous and inverted.

In 2014 Rose died after an eight month battle with Motor Neurone Disease (ALS). In the spirit of celebrating life and her artistry, we dedicate IHD2017 to supporting the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
