Please join us this October 21st and Walk While You Can!

Every day the most remarkable people face the toughest of battles. We will never forget what Fr Tony Coote did for Motor Neurone Disease. In July 2018, five months after his own diagnosis of MND and in a wheelchair, he completed an extraordinary walk from Donegal to Cork, a distance of over 550 kilometres

It took four weeks on the road travelling from town to town in all weather conditions but in the end an incredible €700,000 was raised for the IMNDA and MND Research. From these miraculous funds, we were able to employ a fourth nurse. Our nursing service continues to grow with 6 MND Nurses now funded by the IMNDA!
That’s the power of a walk and YOUR SUPPORT.

Your community walks will keep our nurses in the communities where they are needed most.

This Autumn 2023, it’s up to all of us to ensure that Walk While You Can continues to raise urgently needed funds for people living with MND.

So let’s walk while we can, where we can and continue what Tony started!
