You don't have to be a triathlete or jump out of aeroplanes to fundraise for us! From Auctions to Zumba-a-thon, the possibilities are endless and every little bit makes a difference.

For more ideas see below and if you have any questions, just contact us. 

Please get in touch with MND New Zealand’s Fundraising Manager, Kate Dalders ( if you’d like to discuss your idea, request leaflets, or have any question about permits or raffle licences that may be required.

To make fundraising for us even easier, we've partnered with Everyday Hero to give you the ability to create your own online fundraising page. In just minutes you can build and customise your page, then start sharing the link with your friends, family and colleagues and asking them to make a donation. Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page along with a message of support from your donors.

So what are you waiting for? Create your own online fundraising page today!

What is MND?

MND stands for Motor Neurone Disease, the name of a group of diseases that destroy the nerve cells (neurones) that control your muscles. The most common type of MND is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS.

With no nerves to activate them, the muscles you use to walk, talk, hug, hold, speak, and eat gradually stop working. Eventually, you're locked in a body that can no longer move.

MND can affect anyone. This year about 100 people in New Zealand will die from MND and 100 will be diagnosed. Most will die within three years.
