Default Walk to dFeet MND

Hi All,

On the 26th of this month i will be doing a fund raising walk for MND. As some of you may know, my husband was recently diagnosed with MND at 33yrs old. My heart broke the day we got the diagnosis for him, us, our future and everyone affected by MND. My heart is still broken and most probably will never be fixed, so to help with that pain i decided to do all that i can to raise awareness and funds for this disease

This is the event i will be participating in: Walk to d'Feet MND - Illawarra-Walk to d'Feet MND

This is the area i will be walking around, not too bad huh? Walk to d'Feet MND - Illawarra-Walk to d'Feet MND

Love,
AKN xx

AKN that's great. These walks are wonderful, I've organised a couple up here.
MND NSW are an incredible organisation and without them we would have been toast!

I hope you have a great day, do post some photos here

Go girl! Looks as if you have a beautiful part of the world to walk in.
Take a look at the web page " Swim for Jim" our family really is hooked onto fundraising too.
It is so helpful to know that so many care. Maybe some of the Swim for Jim ideas can be used over your side of the nation?
Good luck with the walk.

Thanks Tillie & AussieMND!!! I'm thrilled with how much I have raised! Officially broke the $2000 mark today too, $2260 to be exact!

Thanks AussieMND, I'll def look into that. My husband & I want to start a charity for him & do car events - he loves his vintage cars We're thinking of calling it DRIVING FOR A CURE. Thoughts on the name?? I know we should probably have MND in the name but we could only think of MOTOR for MND, it's not as catchy...
