Walk While You Can 2021 - IMNDA

Walk While You Can 2021

May 24th, 2021

Will you organise a Community Walk this September? We need you!

Every day the most remarkable people face the toughest of battles. We will never forget what Fr Tony Coote did for Motor Neurone Disease. In July 2018, five months after his own diagnosis of MND and in a wheelchair, he completed an extraordinary walk from Donegal to Cork, a distance of over 550 kilometres

It took four weeks on the road travelling from town to town in all weather conditions but in the end an incredible €700,000 was raised for the IMNDA and MND Research. From these miraculous funds, we were able to employ a fourth nurse. That’s the power of a walk and one man’s incredible strength and determination!

Because of Tony we hired a 4th nurse, because of you we can sustain this vital service.

Your community walks will keep our nurses in the communities where they are needed most.

This September 11th, it’s up to all of us to ensure that Walk While You Can continues to raise urgently needed funds for people living with MND.

So let’s walk while we can, where we can and continue what Tony started!

Together we can make a difference and keep Fr Tony’s legacy going. He himself found hope in times of adversity so we must do the same.
