This is an opportunity to join like-minded people, united by the desire to raise money for medical research and healthcare, to trek the Great Wall together. On this adventure, you will help raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease WA to help deliver pre-eminent specialist support to enhance the quality of life, raise awareness and promote research for people living with Motor Neurone Disease.
The Hike for Health brings together supporters from various Australian and New Zealand health and medical research organisations for an adventure trek to the Great Wall of China. You’ll be part of an incredible team, raising awareness and funds for a health organisation close to your heart. You’ll stand united, as a team, atop the Great Wall, knowing the difference you’ve made.
On the Hike for Health, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture.
Starting in Beijing, you’ll quickly swap the hustle and bustle of the city for the majesty of the Great Wall. You will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Immerse yourself in the ancient history of this World Wonder, explore Beijing’s Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square.
Best of all, you will be raising funds to assist some incredible health and medical research charities as we work towards better health for all Australians and Kiwis.
The Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA (MNDAWA) is committed to providing specialised care and support services for people living with MND, their carers and families in Western Australia. MNDAWA provides care coordination and emotional support through our MND Advisory Service, connecting those living with MND to the services that they require.
The fundraising from this adventure will enable us to provide more services to improve the support we give to people living with MND. It will also help fund more research to find a cure. Until there is a cure, there is care.
- $50 pays for an MND Advisor to call someone newly diagnosed with MND and help guide them through their journey.
- $100 will enable us to provide a home visit to someone living with MND.
