While there has been some respite in the ongoing bushfire crisis that’s devastated parts of Australia, we’re highly aware that we’re still in the thick of it. Our thoughts are with our members, their loved ones and MND NSW staff who have been caught up in the fires, as well as the affected families, communities, and the brave firefighters and volunteers who’ve fought to save lives and property. Whilst you’ve probably already decided on your fire plan, and understand the safest thing to do is to leave early, here are a few extra key tips our MND Advisors are passing on to members living in bush fire zones.

This past year, we’ve been walking all over NSW and the ACT with our incredible supporters, working together to d’Feet MND. Thank you to everyone who has been involved in these Walk to d’Feet MND events—it’s because of you’ve that each has been such an amazing success.

Our last walk for the year
We got a little trendy with our last walk for the year, holding it in Sydney’s Inner West. We had over 500 people turn up for the event and to date, we’ve raised an incredible $77,188.28, just for this Sydney Walk.

It’s been a big year
But Sydney was by no means the only walk we’ve organised. In fact, it’s been a huge year, with a total of eight Walk to d’Feet MND events having been held all over NSW and the ACT, including two new walk locations of Taree and Young.
