PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD & STRIDE OUT IN OUR 'ALL YEAR ROUND' SERIES OF FUN AND SOCIABLE WALKS!
Walk to d’feet* MND is our signature national fundraising event and a fantastic 'year-round' opportunity for individuals, branches and groups to raise awareness and much needed funds through sponsored walks. It's an event for the whole family to enjoy!
Together, let's take steps to d'feet MND.
You can host or take part in Walk to d’feet* MND at any time you please, or if you prefer, you can join a walk that is already taking place in your area. The decision is yours!
Walks can be held at any time of the year, any location and for however long or short a distance as you wish. You might like to consider theming your walk to coincide with a special occasion, birthday or anniversary.
Walks can also take place during our MND Awareness month in June: it's entirely up to you when, where and how you'd like to get involved and show your support.

Please note, you will also need to complete a WTDF Risk Assessment Form prior to your walk which needs to be sent to national office as soon as possible.

To be covered under the MND Association's public liability insurance (against third party damage only), you MUST sign the Walkers' Registration Form on the day of the walk to confirm you are in good health and fit enough to take part. However, this does not cover you or your dependents for personal injury including death.
