Walk 2 D’Feet MND began in New Zealand with just one Walk held in Christchurch in 2014. Nationwide Walks have been held annually since then.
Walk 2 D’Feet MND is a fun and visible way to raise awareness and funds to help in the fight against motor neurone disease (MND). These family friendly accessible walks (between 2km – 5km) are organised and led by local volunteers, who give their time freely to make the events happen.
If you are interested in organising a Walk 2 D’Feet MND event in your local area, we would be delighted to offer guidance, resources and support. Please contact Kate Dalders (Fundraising Manager). Email:firstname.lastname@example.org. Tel: 027 206 9606.
Walk 2 D’Feet MND 2019 was planned in 13 locations across New Zealand. Unfortunately, turbulent weather fought against us this year, but we battled on and were able to hold 12 walk events across New Zealand on Sunday 10th November despite the rain in some areas.
The community came out in full support and we saw thousands Walk to raise funds and awareness of MND.
Walk 2 D’Feet MND and The Corporate Ice Bucket Challenge (an additional campaign held at the Walk in Auckland) raised a total of $155k in support of MND New Zealand. Thank you to everyone involved in making these events happen; local sponsors, volunteers, walkers, fundraisers and donors.
Walk 2 D'Feet MND events were held in 18 towns and cities all over New Zealand on Sunday 11 November. Thousands of adults, children and dogs registered and fundraised to continue nationwide support and advocacy for people living with MND and their carers.
Together we raised $220,532!
A huge thank you to all volunteers, walkers, supporters and sponsors who helped make the event a huge success.
