Our education team had an extensive education calendar prepared and planned for 2020, trialling new events, many in regional areas covering North, South, East and West of NSW and in the ACT. And just because the situation has changed we don’t want you to miss out so we’re taking as many education and information events as we can online.

Given the current situation we’re taking MND week online!

MND Week is celebrated nationally in the first week of May (this year it’s the 3rd to 9th May 2020) to raise awareness of the needs of people living with MND and their families. It’s a time to acknowledge the MND community and people living with MND today and to remember those who have passed. This year, while we can’t run any face to face events, we have a bunch of virtual ways to get involved (some yet to be announced) and more than ever, we really need your help to get the word out there.

Due to current concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID 19) we have decided to POSTPONE the Canberra Walk to d’Feet MND on Sunday 22nd March 2020 and the Orange Walk to d’Feet MND on Sunday 5th April 2020. We’re looking to reschedule the events for later in the year.

Although there’s no cause for alarm, we’ve made this decision based on updates from NSW Health, ACT Health and other experts so we can keep our community safe. Our members are particularly susceptible to this and other viruses and your wellbeing is always our priority.
