Walk to D’feet in Kings Lynn - June 2018

Twenty five people joined the Kings Lynn annual 'Walk to D'feet MND', to raise awareness of MND. Whilst the focus was on raising awareness, some great fundraising was celebrated too.

The morning kicked off with young Rosella Clare presenting a cheque for £300, in memory of her aunt, Mandy Gamble, raised from completing the Mini GEAR run and a fundraising hair cut, with an amazing 21" cut off.

 

Two supporters from North Walsham had raised about £350 for the Norwich branch prior to the event and just over £86 was collected during the walk.

 

We thought that the water skiing world championships on the river during our coffee break last year was pretty amazing....

 

.....this year we were treated to a fantastic Red Arrows display, as we enjoyed our break on the Quay.

Cheque Presentation from Mands Ball & Walk to D'feet MND KL 2017

Walk to D'Feet 2017

Walking & Dancing to D’feet Motor Neurone Disease. Supporters of the Motor Neurone Disease Association took to the streets and river banks of Kings Lynn in June, to increase awareness of this cruel disease for which there is no cure.

 

The Walk to D’feet MND began on a high note, with Hayley Rudd and Michelle Hanslip presenting a cheque to the Association for £4,746.73. This outstanding amount was raised from an extremely successful Charity Ball they had organised earlier in the year at Knights Hill Hotel and will go a very long way towards helping people living locally with Motor Neurone Disease.

 

Hayley and Michelle were motivated to raise funds for MNDA in memory of their aunt and sister, Mandy Gamble, who they lost to MND and who would have been celebrating her 50th birthday this year. Motor Neurone Disease is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It attacks the nerves that control movement. People can still think and feel, but their muscles refuse to work. It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe. Affecting people from all communities, MND kills five people every day in the UK, half within 14 months of diagnosis and affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time. There is no cure.
