About MND Awareness Week

The first week of May is MND Awareness Week throughout Australia. MND Victoria, together with all the MND state organisations and MND Australia, undertake a variety of media, fundraising and awareness activities to raise community recognition and understanding of the disease.

In Victoria, the first day of MND Awareness week is celebrated by the Service of Hope and Remembrance. This is a time when people living with MND, those who have lost someone to MND, carers, researchers, staff and volunteers can come together and reflect on their journey in a caring and non-threatening environment.

Many families who have been impacted by MND use this week to help raise funds through selling MND merchandise in shopping centres, schools, service clubs or their workplace. Some hold events such as a Drink Tea for MND, trivia nights or challenge activites.

In the month leading up to MND Awareness Week we encourage people currently living with MND, or who have lived with MND, to tell their stories to the local media. Personal stories shared through the media are a powerful way of raising the profile of the disease.
