Motor neurone disease has touched the lives of many families. Karalee Baker has a history of MND in her family, with her maternal great grandmother, maternal grandmother and father dying from MND. Karalee’s mother was also diagnosed with MND in 2014. With a history of MND on both sides of their family, Karalee and her siblings have a higher chance of being diagnosed with the disease sometime in their lives.
Karalee is determined to raise awareness of MND and raise funds for answers into the disease. She will run 45 kilometres from Queanbeyan to Gundaroo on the day of the Gundaroo Music Festival, 8 October 2016, and is expected to arrive at at Gundaroo around 2pm. A fundraising page has been set up to give us all the opportunity to donate to the cause.
We wish Karalee the very best in her journey, and urge you to dig deep and support her quest to raise funds for MND research.
