The Sydney Hawks Supporter Group Charity Day was a great success raising over $1,300 for MND NSW. In addtion to the game day viewing there were delicious cup cakes and biscuits for sale, competitions, a raffle and silent auction. Thank you to the Sydney Hawks Committee for their support. Special thanks to Ruth Langdon who was a coordinator of the day to support our Association. Ruth said of the event, "We are all so grateful for the opportunity to make a contribution to such a wonderful cause." Pictured left is the Sydney Hawks Committee.
A big thank you to Steven Plunkett and his daughter Rebecca who organised 'Plunkys Ride for MND', a fun cruise by bike and car to help create awareness and support for MND NSW. Steven's love of motor bikes inspired the event. The ride started at Ourimbah rest stop then continued around Lake Macquarie and finished at Caves Beach. Despite the rain the day received great support and raised $3,180. Thank you Steven and Rebecca.
