A colour run was organised by Tracy Anderson from Totally Tumbling and Tricks to raise funds for MND research. It was a fun, and messy, day out for eveyone who participated! Our thanks to Bronwyn Wood who attended on behalf of MND NSW. A big thank you to Tracy for all her work towards this event which raised $3,298 for MND research.

Thank you to Zara White who organised a High Tea event overlooking the stunning Moruya River in November. Zara is part of a craft group, and the event was held in memory of their dear friend Karen. The High Tea was a great success with over 50 guests attending and a fantastic $2,292 raised for MND NSW. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this event!

Thank you to the staff from the Department of the Environment and Energy in Canberra for their continued support with an Ice Bucket Challenge event. The event, known as The Scott Lisle Memorial Ice Bucket Challenge, is now in its fifth year and is held in memory of a former colleague. A special thank you to the Department's 2019 Graduates who coordinated the event and to MND NSW Board Member, Amy Critchley who attended. This year's event was another success with $10,790 raised for MND. 

While there has been some respite in the ongoing bushfire crisis that’s devastated parts of Australia, we’re highly aware that we’re still in the thick of it. Our thoughts are with our members, their loved ones and MND NSW staff who have been caught up in the fires, as well as the affected families, communities, and the brave firefighters and volunteers who’ve fought to save lives and property. Whilst you’ve probably already decided on your fire plan, and understand the safest thing to do is to leave early, here are a few extra key tips our MND Advisors are passing on to members living in bush fire zones.
