Sup­port peo­ple liv­ing with MND

Hamilton News - - NEWS -

All around the coun­try, in­clud­ing Hamil­ton, Ki­wis are rais­ing money, sup­port and aware­ness for the Walk 2 D’feet Mo­tor Neu­rone Dis­ease on Sun­day, Novem­ber 11.

Join and sup­port the an­nual walk at Innes Com­mon, Hamil­ton Lake, and raise funds to con­tinue vi­tal sup­port and re­search for the dis­ease.

Money raised helps con­tinue to of­fer free sup­port to fam­i­lies af­fected by MND and fund vi­tal re­search to help find a cure.

Lo­cal MND vol­un­teer helper Lesley Sav­ille says: “Ev­ery­one is wel­come to take part, wet or fine we go ahead. The theme for the walk is Blue and to have fun.

“There will be a prize for the best dressed. Af­ter the walk we will have a silent auc­tion; sup­port­ers can bid on some great items in­clud­ing; two nights ac­com­mo­da­tion at a beau­ti­ful bach in Waihi, a Learn to Ride eques­trian hol­i­day pro­gramme through Phillips Equine, and a net­ball signed by a Sliver Fern. More items will be listed on their Hamil­ton Face­book page.”

Half of the funds raised pro­vide sup­port for peo­ple with MND and their car­ers. The other half goes to sup­port­ing MND re­search in New Zealand.
