From the Desk

A message from MDA's Executive Director...

What an amazing event this year’s MDA Run for Strength was on Sunday! I would have to say it was our most enjoyable fun run held to date with a crowd of more than 1,000 people and so far we have raised close to $30,000. The weather was perfect with bright sunny skies and the crowd was in fantastic form with an abundance of happy smiling faces and laughs shared.

There were hundreds of superheroes zooming along the track and it was great to see so many of our MD community taking part. You can check out some of the event photos on our Facebook page here... [CONTINUES]

Have your say on the new Disability Employment Framework

Today, the Abbott Government announced the launch of a national public consultation to inform development of a new Disability Employment Framework.

MDA is encouraging all members of the MD community - including those people living with MD, families, carers and disability workers - to either make a submission or attend a forum to have their voice heard. An Issues Paper has been released to encourage discussion about the current approach and the best ways to support people with disability to find long-term, meaningful employment.

People, pies and prizes all make for successful event for MDA

There’s nothing better than a delicious warm pie on a cold autumn’s night, unless, that pie is also served with a side of gratitude.

This is just what was on offer last Thursday night, 21 May, when long-time friends of MDA, Paul and Christine Freestone (pictured left), hosted a Pie Night to thank some very special supporters of MD. The married couple began supporting MDA over six years ago when they donned their hiking boots and trekked Nepal along with a group of other like-minded people in the ChallengeMD! 2009 Nepal event.

More than 60 people gathered at the Freestone’s ‘man cave’ in Tullamarine to network, share stories and join together in the fight for MD... [CONTINUES]
