During MND Week 2018 support our wonderful volunteers selling merchandise and collecting donations.
The Gold Coast Carers MND Support Group meets bi-monthly at Clear Island Waters. Come along to our new venue at Surfers Paradise Golf Club for our next meeting on Wednesday 6 June 2018 (no meeting in April due to the Commonwealth Games). This is a great opportunity for carers to meet in a relaxed environment, enjoy some morning tea and company. Find out more.
About 30 people living with MND, their families and friends from South West Sydney and surrounds attended the Bossley Park MND NSW Living Well with MND Day on Tuesday 20 March. We were very fortunate to have many of the team from the Liverpool Hospital MND Clinic attending - sharing their expertise about living with MND and how the Clinic can assist.
Dr Dennis Cordato, Neurologist, gave a very informative talk about MND to start the day.
Congratulations Hunter what a fantastic show of support for the Walk to d'feet MND Hunter! With $45,000 raised so far the fundraising page will stay open for another two weeks. It was a new venue this year, and what a great success it was with a choice of two different Walk routes for participants to choose from. There were over 700 people, lots of furry friends and a wonderful atmosphere. Thank you to Angie for the great music, the Lions Club for the yummy sausages, Kickin Back Coffee and of course a very big thanks to all our wonderful volunteers. Not to forget our wonderful sponsors Leah Jay, KOFM and Capture Imaging Photography. Donations can be made at the Hunter Walk page https://secure.artezpacific.com/registrant/EventHome.aspx?eventid=50276&langpref=en-CA&Referrer=direct%2fnone
