On Sunday 6 May, to coincide with the kick off of MND Week, 387 people (primarily residents of the Sutherland Shire, but coming as far afield as the Central Coast, Gundaroo and Tenterfield) ran or walked from Sutherland (5 km) or Miranda (10 km) to Cronulla to raise funds and awareness for motor neurone disease. Several families that have battled or who are battling MND were also in attendance, all local to the Sutherland Shire.
Over $40,000.00 was raised, half of which will be donated to care and half to research into the cause of and cure for MND. This is the third annual run/walk which has collectively raised over $72,000.00. The organiser, Ms Sophy Townsend, would like to thank everyone who participated in the event and everyone who generously donated. #runmnd #endmnd
