We’re heading to the heart of Australia to trek the legendary Larapinta Trail and we’re calling on people who are passionate about hiking to get involved. On this incredible adventure, you’ll trek through the Australian outback on one of the most spectacular walking trails. Regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks, the Larapinta Trail winds from the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station toward the peak of Mount Sonder. To top it off, you’ll also be raising funds for MND NSW to provide essential services and support for people living with motor neurone disease.
What an amazing turn out to the first Walk to d’Feet ever held in Young. We had 272 participants who got involved and helped us to raise $20,352 to date! To put this in perspective, this money could buy an electric wheel chair 4 shower chairs and 4 transfer belts and make a real difference to people living with MND. We would like to acknowledge the support of the amazing local businesses who helped us make it such a special day including; Jaclyn from That Coffee, The Lions Club of Young, Chloe from Clicky Cookies,Molly from Moava, Bev Moloney & her wonderful preserves stall, our face painter Katie, Toni from Salami Bros Pizza, Stephen from Whip 1 4U Ice Cream Van and Sheree from the Criterion Hotel.
‘The support we’ve had from the community is inspiring. We couldn’t be more thankful to those giving up their time to help us in this important cause.’
—Graham Opie, CEO at MND NSW.
We can’t thank everyone who got involved enough for making the walk so successful and bringing along family and friends (and of course pooches) to show support for people living with MND and their loved ones. Together, we’ve made a real difference in the lives of people touched by MND.
