Do you thrive on a challenge? Or do you need some inspiration to challenge yourself? Whatever the reason, 2017 is the year to team up with MND Victoria to raise much needed funds whilst achieving a significant personal accomplishment.
Over the last few years a large number of people that have been impacted by Motor Neuron Disease in one way or another have run, walked, rode, jumped, swam, crawled and paddled their way through all sorts of events to raise funds that go directly to caring and providing equipment to those living with MND.
There is no better feeling than setting yourself a goal, fundraising and training towards your goal and then achieving what you set out to do. We have chosen five events this year where we challenge you to challenge yourself. Everything from running 5km up to a marathon, tackling 7000+ stairs in the iconic MCG to getting down and dirty through the Tough Mudder obstacle course or simply participating in the ‘happiest 5km on the planet’ in the Colour Run.
We will have fundraising pages for each of the events listed below. There you can sign up, start training and start fundraising. Each fundraising participant will receive a MND training pack and receive constant encouragement, support and relevant information. We will also be running group training sessions to help you on your journey and so you can meet those working towards similar goals. It is the year to do something great for yourself, and for others.

2016 Walk to D’Feet MND Events Round Up
It’s been another fantastic start to the MND Victoria Walk to D’Feet MND events calendar. November 2016 saw Walks take place in Rosebud, Carlton and Bendigo. While the main goal of the Walk is for people impacted by the disease to get together to support each other in a fun and friendly way, they are also very important awareness and fundraising activities. Participation in the Walks continue to increase and this is also reflected in an increase in fundraising. The Walks are the biggest MND Victoria sponsored fundraising events.
Together the Rosebud, Carlton and Bendigo Walks have raised over $204,000 so far with donations still being received.

If every person in Victoria who has been impacted by MND in the last ten years shared their story with one person each week, and encouraged them to share the story with just one other person, then very soon over one million people would know about the disease.
