We have an ambitious goal of raising $80,000 to ensure the following vital services can continue:

  • Supporting scientists to research and better understand the complexities of MND, so that truly effective treatments can be developed, and ultimately, a cure can be found.
  • Helping to make time count for people with MND and their loved ones by providing personalised, compassionate, and practical help through community-based MND Support Advisors.
  • Advocating for equitable care, timely access to essential equipment, home modifications, and support systems for improved quality of life - regardless of where you live.

Could you help us to achieve this, by taking part in Walk to Defeat MND?
