Do you thrive on a challenge? Or do you need some inspiration to challenge yourself? Whatever the reason, 2017 is the year to team up with MND Victoria to raise much needed funds whilst achieving a significant personal accomplishment.
Over the last few years a large number of people that have been impacted by Motor Neurone Disease in one way or another have run, walked, rode, jumped, swam, crawled and paddled their way through all sorts of events to raise funds that go directly to caring and providing equipment to those living with MND.
There is no better feeling than setting yourself a goal, fundraising and training towards your goal and then achieving what you set out to do. You could choose anything from running 5km up to marathon, tackling 7000+ stairs in the iconic MCG to getting down and dirty through the Tough Mudder obstacle course or simply participating in the ‘happiest 5km on the planet’ in the Colour Run.
Each fundraising participant will receive a MND training pack and receive constant encouragement, support and relevant information. We will also be running group training sessions to help you on your journey and so you can meet those working towards similar goals. It is the year to do something great for yourself, and for others.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in previous years.
As a direct result of funds from the 2014 Ice Bucket Challenge being invested into MND research, three new genes have been discovered to be involved in ALS/MND.
Funds from the Ice Bucket Challenge have also supported people with MND to stay independent and mobile for as long as possible.
All these events are great awareness and fundraising opportunities. Everyone who registers for any, some or all of these challenge events and who are raising funds for MND Victoria will receive a free MND Never Give Up Singlet or T-Shirt.
