Haydn Radford -A freelance writer born in Adelaide, who loves living here. I write about movies, theatre, entertainment, literary and art events. I am happy to promote & review your events.

Everyone is invited to join The Motor Neurone Disease Association of SA (MND SA) in their biggest Fund raising event, Walk to D-Feet MND at 11.00 am on Sunday 1 May 2016.

This annual family friendly event consists of a leisurely 4 km walk along the beach starting and finishing at Adelaide Sailing Club at 9 Barcoo Road, West Beach South Australia. The walk will be followed by a sausage sizzle, raffle and activities, including fun events like face-painting for the children.

The walk is wheelchair and dog friendly with all participants receiving a complimentary Walk to D-Feet t-sheet. This year Channel 10 journalists Rebecca Morse and Nick Butler will host the walk.

The Walk to D-Feet MND symbolises the commitment of the association to find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND). It is also a day to commemorate those we have lost to MND.

Motor Neurone Disease Association of SA was founded in 1985. Its mission is to provide and promote the best possible care and support for people living with MND.

The objectives of MND SA are:

Provide information and support services to South Australians affected by MND.

Sponsor, encourage and promote research into causes, cure and treatment.

Promote awareness through community education and MND research

Provide MND specific information and support to health and allied professionals.

MND SA is a not-for-profit, non-government fund organisation with fundraising being its prime source of income. It is committed to fundraising projects Walk to D-Feet MND, The Ice Bucket Challenge and Every August Until a Cure, to enable the very best care to be provided to its clients.

The cause of Motor Neurone Disease is not known and there is no cure. It is a progressive degenerative disease in which the nerve cells (neurones) controlling the muscles that enable us to move around, speak, breathe and swallow fail to work. MND progresses at a rapid rate creating increased levels of disability resulting in need for support. There are no remissions from Motor Neurone Disease. After diagnosis the average survival is usually no more than 2 to 3 years.
