2022 Walk to D’Feet MND
Events & Fundraising
7 March 2022
On Sunday 27th February, our supporters gathered their teams to walk, run, cycle and wheel around their chosen tracks across the country. While the format this year shifted from large group events to individual or small group walks to protect our community while New Zealand is in the red level of the COVID-19 Protection Framework, we still had enormous support from our incredible teams.
The annual Walk to D’Feet event raises vital funds for MND support, information, advocacy, awareness, and research. The walk provides an opportunity for people impacted by MND to come together, honour those living with MND, and commemorate loved ones lost to the disease.
From team ‘One Love’ doing walks spread out across Whangarei, Orewa, Weymouth, Karaka and Tuakau; to teams in Auckland walking through the City Centre and Shakespear Regional Park; across the Hauraki Plains; down to Whanganui; to Hagley Park in Christchurch, and Queens Park in Southland – and many more beautiful locations across the country!
With 16 teams total, made up of 42 supporters we managed to raise over $30,000, which goes towards supporting those living with MND in New Zealand. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful and dedicated community ready to support and participate in our annual Walk 2 D’Feet Events, no matter the format.
Thank you everyone who participated, donated, and got involved!
