About Walk to d ‘Feet MND

With eight locations across NSW and the ACT, the Walks were created to raise funds to support people living with MND and to raise funds and awareness for research.

Thousands of families and friends along with their four-legged friends have taken part. The day consists of raffles, food, fun and of course, the walk! Plus some locations have music and entertainment after the Walk. Have a look at the individual Walk pages for further details.

Money raised through donations and online fundraising helps support people living with MND and their families, and provide vital funds for research.

Volunteering

Without the help of our wonderful volunteers, it would not be possible for MND NSW to hold such great community events.

The ideal volunteer is someone who is over 16 years of age and doesn’t mind an early start! All volunteers need to have a high level of communication skills, both written and verbal. There is variety of roles on offer to suit all fitness levels. The ideal volunteer will also be a happy and encouraging person, with the ability to work well under pressure and cope with large crowds of eager participants.
