Join MND & Me’s Steps For Support and help Queenslanders living with Motor Neurone Disease receive access to crucial support services when and where they are needed. Your adventure starts here…
In July 2021, a team of dedicated adventurers are heading to the Northern Territory on a once-in-a-lifetime trekking adventure to the Larapinta Trail. Renowned as one of Australia’s most premier walking tracks, you’ll follow the trail as it traverses the breathtaking West MacDonnell Mountain Ranges. Surrounded by endless stretches of red desert and ancient bush, you’ll trek well-defined paths, rugged inclines and rolling hills of limestone. With spectacular views of Mount Sonder and Haasts Bluff resting in the distance, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the Outback.
Along the way, hear the dreamtime stories of the Western Arrernte people and enjoy some delicious bush tucker. And at the end of each challenging but rewarding day of trekking, reflect on all you have accomplished as you watch the colours of the night desert erupt into millions of stars.
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is the term used for a group of diseases that affect the functioning of neurones, or nerve cells. Without properly functioning neurones, the muscles weaken and waste which has a debilitating effect on a person’s quality of life. Every person’s experience with MND is different. Sadly, there is currently no cure and living with this disease can often feel extremely overwhelming and isolating.
By joining this adventure, you’ll be supporting the MND and Me Foundation to continue to ensure no Queenslander has to face this terminal disease alone. All of the funds raised from this challenge will go directly to the foundation’s Spark Neurocare program. In collaboration with MS Queensland, this program continues to be a key support service providing Queenslanders living with MND access to crucial services needed to maintain quality of life.
