In the midst of this glorious heatwave, there's never been a better time to get your family outdoors, enjoying that glorious sunshine. And what if you could help a great cause at the same time?
Grab the kids, and the cool bags and take part in the Irish Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association (IMNDA)'s annual ‘Walk to D-Feet MND’. Come together with friends and family and join in the Phoenix Park (at the Papal Cross Car Park) on Saturday 21st of July at 11am to join the walk in aid of Motor Neurone Disease.
Anyone and everyone can go; the route is buggy and wheelchair accessible and kids walk for free! Registration is only €20 for adults and this includes a t-shirt and other goodies - and remember, it all goes towards a wonderful cause.
Every step makes a difference. "We walk for hope, we walk in support, and we walk so that one day we will see a world free of MND".
Walking 5K can help the IMNDA to continue providing care for over 370 families across Ireland.
MND is a progressive neurological condition that leaves people unable to do the everyday things that the rest of us take for granted. Walking, talking and swallowing may become virtually impossible. MND strikes people of all ages and there is no cure.
The IMNDA is dedicated to providing care for people with Motor Neurone Disease, their carers and families as well as supporting research into the causes and treatments of MND. In order to provide these vital services, the IMNDA depends heavily on the generosity of the public and friends of the association who generate over 82% of its income.
Registration is €20, which you can pay online or on the day. All children under the age of 12 go free. This is a fully accessible route both buggy and wheelchair friendly. All walkers get a green IMNDA t-shirt. For more information see www.imnda.ie
