MND NSW is holding a series of workshops this year for allied health staff (occupational therapists, speech pathologists, dietitians and physios) who work with people with MND who are under 65 and have an NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) plan. The first of these was held on Thursday 9 February on the Central Coast. We had a great turn with about 20 allied health professionals attending, with the majority of those attending working as solo private practitioners. They wanted to know more about MND, working in a multidisciplinary way as a solo practitioner and 'MND and the NDIS'.

There was a lot of discussion around the adequacy of NDIS plans people with MND have had approved.

Last September the inaugural Rock to River Row raised $2,500 in support of MND NSW. Over five days the team of Jeff Huyben, Stuart Ord, Adam Thompson and Brett Wheeler rowed 500 kms on rowing machines in locations from Uluru to Alice Springs. We thank the team for their stellar effort and support.

Thank you to the following supporters.

  • Wendy Whitmore and the Central Coast Fundraising Group who raised $1,047 from their Christmas Gift Wrapping fundraiser.
  • Warners Bay High School, Year 12, 2017 who donated $500.
  • Victoria Haberley who donated $2,600 from a carnival dunking booth and a comedy night.
