Advance is the newsletter of the MND Research Institute of Australia - the research arm of MND Australia.
This is the third year that staff from the Department of the Environment and Energy in Canberra have supported our association with an Ice Bucket Challenge. The event, now known as The Scott Lisle Memorial Ice Bucket Challenge, is held in memory of a former colleague. We would like to thank Tara McGowan and Phil Bates who coordinate the event, and everyone who generously donated. A fantastic $7,000 was raised. Thank you for the continued support!
A big thank you to the Craft Market Greystanes for choosing to support MND NSW with their annual market in November which raised $5,447. With 38 stalls booked for the day the market was a great success and a good day was had by all. One stallholder and one sponsor of the event have had family members who have suffered from MND so they were extremely happy to provide their support. Thank you also to St Pauls Catholic College, Greystanes, who made a donation from their annual car show and BBQ on the day.
