A big thank you to Daniela Kacev, along with her family and friends, who raised $1,450 for MND NSW from a recent Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings Eastgardens. The Sausage Sizzle was held in honour of a family friend who passed away from MND.
MND NSW was selected for the Local Matters program at Grill'd Macquarie Centre in Sydney for the month of July.
