About

There are estimated 1,900 people with Motor Neurone Disease in Australia, each with an estimated life expectancy of only 27 months. Those 27 months will see a steady disintegration of their muscles until they can no longer eat, breath, or talk to their loved ones.

Last year I lost a close friend to MND – a brilliant man and a loving husband and father, at the peak of his life. To see him cut down so fast was beyond comprehension.

To raise funds in the fight against this debilitating disease, I will be walking 100km throughout Bennelong in late October and early November, and it would be great to have you involved.

There are 2 ways you can do this:

1. Financially: I will be collecting donations for MND NSW as I go, in buckets at selected locations, or through this website. Please feel free to donate directly, or set up a team for your company to raise funds as a group.

2. Physically: Join me! keep me company for 10 metres or 10 kilometres. Come along for a chat about issues which concern you or just use the excuse to stretch your legs in the fresh air

Drop me a line at john.alexander.mp@aph.gov.au if you'd like to join me and I'll let you know where I'll be.

I have had cancer myself and also lost friends to sudden onset disease so I am very sympathetic to this effort. Keep up the good work.

Good job! ("A leaflet will come to your door prior to my visit to let you know when I’ll be around your area" - nope, it didn't, but who would want to walk in this miserable weather, anyway!?)
