When the remarkable Fr. Tony Coote did his extraordinary walk last year from Donegal to Cork – some 550 kilometres – he raised over €600,000 for Motor Neurone Disease.
From these miraculous funds, IMNDA were able to hire a much needed fourth outreach nurse to care and support people living with Motor Neurone Disease in Ireland. This has been invaluable, allowing IMNDA’s nursing team to reach more people in the community more often.
The outreach nursing service provided by the IMNDA helps over 370 people and families spread across 26 counties. This is the only service of its kind in the country and it is funded entirely from public donations.
Organisers are encouraging people to get their family and friends on board and be part of something special by taking part in their own Walk While You Can for MND.
Or if not, join in at the Phoenix Park on Saturday 14th September at 11am for our 5k Walk While You Can. It is only €20 per adult, €5 for 12 – 16 year olds and U12’s go free! You can register online by simply visiting www.imnda.ie
Please help to honour Fr. Tony’s incredible achievement and in turn help hundreds of people nationwide who are affected by this cruel and debilitating disease.
There are currently over 378 people living with MND in Ireland. MND is often referred to as the 1,000-day disease as most people die within 1,000 days of first symptoms. 1 person dies every 3 days from MND.
