What is the Walk to Defeat MND?

Walk to Defeat MND is an inclusive, family-friendly event for the community to come together in support of a loved one living with MND or to pay tribute to someone lost to this devastating disease. Participants raise funds and awareness for MND to walk or roll 2km to 4km in parks or near beaches, and in 2024, we are hosting four walks at Hollindale Park (Gold Coast), New Farm Park (Brisbane), Mooloolaba Rotary Park (Sunshine Coast), and Queens Park (Toowoomba).

We have a robust team of 20-30 volunteers at each event to make it happen. Your contribution is invaluable as every hour gifted allows us to allocate more funds to support Queenslanders living with Motor Neurone Disease directly.
