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.
It’s meant we’ve been lucky enough to spend time with members and supporters from all over the place—walking in memory of loved ones as well as raising funds and awareness so we can better support people living with MND now, their families and carers.
We set the bar high this year and aimed to raise a whopping $300,000! To date we’ve nearly reached out target having raised $298,268. All this is thanks to your amazing support.
What your support means
Because of you, we'll be able to continue supporting people with MND and their loved ones, providing much needed equipment and information as well as fostering a community where people can share their experiences of MND and learn from each other.
Most importantly, it means we can continue working together with people who are living with MND to ensure they maintain as much independence as possible, so they can stay at home with their loved ones.

Walk to d’Feet MND
The name of these events, Walk to d’Feet MND, reflects the hope and inspiration these special days provide for the MND Community. We’ve loved watching teams made up of family, friends, colleagues and individuals walk to raise funds and awareness for research and support for people living with motor neurone disease.
We want to give a big shout out to everyone who walked alongside us this year and we hope each one of you had an amazing time. Your support means the world to us.
In the meantime, we’re dusting off our boots and getting organised for our Walk to d’Feet MND events in 2020. We can’t wait to see you there!
