Thank you to Alexandra Vainauskas who generously hosted a Benefit Day for MND NSW in her home. It was a fun day of food and friends, with 25 people attending. A total of $849 was raised from donations and the sale of MND NSW merchandise.
We recently received a lovely message from one of our members who attended the Walk to d'Feet in Canberra last year. "I was so inspired by the love and support friends and family gave me at the walk for MND last year. It was a very emotional day looking around at the many supporters all dressed in blue and MND NSW staff who give their undivided time to help raise awareness for this beastly disease. Cheers Margie" If you haven't yet experienced a Walk to d'Feet MND why not join us in Canberra on Sunday 24 June. Register here.
They're back, by popular demand. Our MND Hoodies will be available to order until 28 May. Don’t miss out. They are super warm and cozy. Every purchase includes a donation to support people living with the disease. $69 (includes shipping) fitted style so order a size or two up if you want a more relaxed fit. The hoodies are custom printed so will take approx. 3 weeks to arrive from when you order. Order cut off date is 28 May.
Thank you to all our volunteers - over 175 of you - who generously gave your time to raise money for MND NSW on Cornflower Blue Day, Friday 11 May and throughout MND Week. To date you have collected over $36,000. Thank you for being there for us, we hope you met some wonderful people and formed some great friendships as you volunteered. We have heard that many of our volunteers met members of the community who have been touched by MND who came forward to talk and share their story. Thank you for raising awareness, connecting people and starting discussions.
