Walk 2 D’Feet MND

Walk 2 D’Feet MND events will be held nationwide on Sunday 12th November, 2017. Half of the funds raised will go towards supporting MND research in New Zealand.

Thousands of people will join these walks, organised by people whose lives have been affected by MND, and by people who are living with MND themselves. Each walk will be under 5km on flat, wheelchair friendly terrain.

If you are interested in sponsoring our 2017 Walk 2 D’Feet MND events, please download our proposal.


The 2017 Walks 2 D'Feet MND will be held in 16 towns and cities all over New Zealand. This year's walks are being held on Sunday 12 November.

This year we also welcome Fire and Emergency New Zealand, who are organising our first Extreme Walk 2 D'Feet MND. A few strong fire fighters will be walking all the way from Palmerston North to Wellington!

The early bird cost to enter the walk is $10 for an individual and $20 for a family (two adults and unlimited children under 14). Entries received after 2 November will be $15 for an individual and $25/family. Children under 14 are free. We also have some great prizes to auction, and refreshments on site, so bring your wallet with you. Please bring your own water.

Buy your 2017 t-shirt here! T-shirts must be pre-ordered by 2 November.

If you'd like to sign up as a fundraiser, please follow the link from your region below, then click the yellow Start Fundraising button (click here for more detailed instructions). Half of the funds raised will go towards supporting MND research in New Zealand, and the other half will help MND New Zealand continue its crucial work providing support for people with MND and their whanau and carers.
