Walks 2 D’Feet MND are being held in 14 cities and towns nationwide on Sunday 25th September. Please click here to register!
This year’s walks have been organised by people whose lives have been affected by MND, and by people who are living with MND themselves. Hundreds of people who have been personally affected by MND are expected to join them.
Each walk will be between 3km and 5km on flat terrain that is child and wheelchair friendly. Half of the funds raised will go towards supporting MND research in New Zealand.
Click on your nearest city or town to find out more about your local Walk 2 D'Feet MND, or to make a donation. Please click here to register to walk. Thank you for your support!
The early bird cost to enter the walk is $10 for an individual and $20 for a family (two adults and unlimited children). Entries received after 16 September will be $15 for an individual and $25/family. Children under 14 are free.
Buy your 2016 t-shirt here! T-shirts must be pre-ordered. Only limited merchandise will be available on the day, so make sure you order now. Online orders close on Wednesday 14 September.
We also have some great prizes to auction, and refreshments on site, so bring your wallet with you. Please bring your own water.
Half of the funds raised will go towards supporting MND research in New Zealand, and the other half will go to MND NZ to continue its crucial work providing support for people with MND and their carers.
Last year over 2,500 people joined Walks 2 D'Feet MND in six cities, and raised $75,000.
