Register Your Own Walk While You Can

Hope starts with one step. Change happens with many.

When the remarkable Fr. Tony Coote did his extraordinary walk in 2018 from Donegal to Cork – some 550 kilometers – he raised over €600,000! The proceeds were split between the IMNDA and Research Motor Neurone. From this incredible figure, we were able to employ a fourth full time nurse. On the 14th of September 2019, we walked in Fr. Tony’s memory. We intend to make 2020 an even bigger event but in the meantime you can organise your very own WWYC event in your area, within your own community! 

Walk While You Can

Fr. Tony very sadly passed away on 28th August 2019, but his wonderful legacy of action and inspiration will continue to live on. 

On the 14th September 2019, over a 1000 people took part in our Walk While You Can 5K in Phoenix Park. The response was  phenomenal. We are excited about what’s to come this year. 

We want people from all over Ireland to help keep the pilgrimage alive and continue the fundraising fight that Fr. Tony started. Will you join the Walk While You Can community? Walk Packs are available from the IMNDA to help you to organise your own:

  • Pick a date for your walk – any time during the year that suits your group best
  • Pick a location – your local park, GAA club, even your workplace.
  • Register your event with us and we will send your pack (includes posters, sponsorship envelopes and stickers).

Claire Byrne WAS our fantastic Walk Ambassador FOR 2019

“Your support means vital funds will be raised to provide people who have MND with the crucial support and care that they and their families need and deserve.”

Remember hope starts with one step, change happens with many.

We look forward to making Walk While You Can even bigger this year and taking it to lots of communities across Ireland.
