Thank you for supporting Cuppa Tea for MND

You can help people with motor neurone disease by getting your friends and family together for a Cuppa Tea for MND during MND Awareness Week (17-23 June).

What is MND?

Motor neurone disease (MND) causes the muscles that enable us to move, speak, swallow and breathe to gradually stop working. MND is known as ALS in some countries.

  • New Zealand has one of the highest known rates of MND in the world.
  • Two people are diagnosed with MND each week.
  • MND is life-shortening. 
  • Life expectancy varies, most people live 2-5 years after symptoms begin.
  • A person’s lifetime risk of developing MND is up to 1 in 300.
  • The cause is not yet known.
  • There is very little treatment and no known cure.


Funds raised will help MND New Zealand to provide the best quality care and support for those living with motor neurone disease. 

The MND New Zealand Support Team provides free, personalised support and advocacy for almost every person with MND in New Zealand. They help build and maintain teams of health professionals around everyone with MND, and help the whanau surrounding people with MND work together as a team, so they have the best quality of life possible.

If you are unable to host a Cuppa Tea for MND why not simply donate $5 (the price of a good cuppa).

Get your team together for a Cuppa Tea for MND!
