About Walk 2 D’Feet MND
Walks 2 D’Feet MND will take place all over New Zealand on Sunday, 11 November 2018. These easy, fun walks are a powerful way to show your support for people with motor neurone disease (MND). The walks raise money for MND research and support services.
All Walks 2 D’Feet MND are wheel-friendly for wheelchairs, prams and strollers. Kids are welcome. Please be prepared for all weather. Wet or fine, we go ahead!
We appreciate your early online registration, which helps our volunteers plan their events (and saves you $5 per person). Your registration fee covers the cost of running the walks. Some walkers also choose to fundraise, which gives the walks an amazingly positive ongoing impact. The funds you raise contribute to MND research, and help MND New Zealand provide free support to people with MND and their whanau.
Thank you for walking to defeat MND. Your participation and fundraising efforts make a real difference to people with MND and their families.
What is MND?
Motor neurone disease (MND) causes the muscles that enable us to move, speak, hug, hold, eat, and breathe to gradually stop working. MND can affect anyone. Every week, another two people are diagnosed.
MND is an extraordinarily debilitating disease. It can be very isolating for people with MND and their whanau, but the Walk 2 D'Feet MND events powerfully show people they aren't alone.
MND New Zealand works with people living with MND to enable them to have the best quality of life possible. We are a charity that provides free support to people with MND all over New Zealand, and their families and healthcare teams.
