What is the cost to register for the walk?

What should I wear and bring?

Please BYO water. We will not have anywhere for you to store personal belongings. Please do not bring anything valuable.

We encourage you to wear blue to represent the cornflower, the international symbol of hope for MND, because of its fragile appearance but hardy nature. Have fun with accessories, wigs, tutus – we only ask that your outfit is safe to walk in and will not be a hazard to yourself or other participants.

How can I show others who I'm walking for?

We will have stickers available on the day so you can show who you are walking to support or honour.

If the weather is dodgy, how can I find out if the event is still on?

People living with MND face challenges every day, so we won't let bad weather deter us. However, look at our Facebook page if conditions are extreme.

Can I order a t-shirt if I’ve already registered?

We encourage you to order your t-shirts when you register, however, T-shirts will be available from mnd.org.nz/merchandise from September.

Are refunds available?

How do I set up a fundraising page?

Your fundraising page will be generated automatically when you register to walk. You can then customise your page and share it with your friends, family and colleagues. You don’t have to take part in online fundraising, but it's a great way to share your connection to MND and tell your story.
