Walk 2 D'Feet MND is the main annual fundraising event series for MND New Zealand. MND New Zealand works with people living with motor neurone disease (MND) to enable them to have the best quality of life possible. They provide free support and advocacy to people with MND all over New Zealand, their families and healthcare teams, through all stages of the disease.
