We would like to thank the wonderful community at the Nareen Terrace retirement village who recently held a morning tea which raised $486. Thank you also to MND NSW Ambassador, Don McMurray, who attended the event and spoke about MND and his experiences as a carer. Thank you to everyone who contributed and supported this lovely event.
A big thank you to Faye Wheeler who again organised a Dubbo Ladies Shopping Trip which raised $1,200 for MND NSW. Faye said of the event, "Another fabulous weekend with a great group of girls. Lots of fun, laughter, fundraising and of course shopping." Thank you ladies for your wonderful support!
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.
We wanted to say a huge thank you to our incredible team of volunteers who continue to provide us with valuable and unwavering support. We’re a relatively small charity but we achieve a lot for our size and much of this is thanks to this amazing group of people who volunteer their most precious resource. Time.
Christmas is nearly upon us and for those of us whose lives have been affected in some way by motor neurone disease, the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends is incredibly special. But what if your iPad was the only voice you had to communicate with your loved ones? For people with MND this is often the case. It’s why we’re asking for your help.
