100km's 100 Day's

I will ride 100km's a day for 100 days.

$25,500

raised so far

100%

of $10,000 goal

This Saturday May 16th was to be the 5th Annual MND & Me Foundation ‘Pies to the Pacific’ Charity Bike Ride. It typically involves 120 cyclists riding 170km’s and raising $150,000.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions this years ride has been cancelled. This is following the cancellation of the Foundation’s Gala Evening in March, 2 of the largest fund raising activities of the year. These 2 events not going ahead has a significant impact on funding for the Foundation to continue the work they do.

To do my bit starting on May 16th I will be riding 100km’s a day for 100 days. Any and every donation would be greatly appreciated however my aim is to have 100 people donate $100 ($1 a day) to get to the target of raising $10,000.

I know that the MND and Me Foundation does great work supporting both people with MND and their families while also funding critical research.

This is our chance to help them make a positive difference is the lives of people impacted by MND.

No donation is too small and any support you can provide is greatly appreciated.

What is Motor Neurone Disease?

You have nerves in your brain and spinal cord that control how your muscles work. These are called motor neurones. MND is a disease that affects the motor neurones. With MND, motor neurones gradually stop telling your muscles how to move. When muscles no longer move, they become weak, which can also lead to stiffness and loss of muscle mass (wasting). MND is a life-shortening illness that can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. This is usually different for each individual. You may not get all of the symptoms and there is no set order in which they happen. The disease will progress, which means symptoms will get worse over time. For some people this can be rapid, for others it is slower. There is currently no cure for MND.
