Fundraising for MD
Throughout the year MDA holds many fundraising events and activities. We rely heavily on the support of community fundraisers, not only to enable us to fund vital research into finding a cure for MD but also to allow us to provide crucial support and services to the MD community.
Here are just a few ways you can get involved to show your support for MDA: –
ChallengeMD Goldfields 2018 – 27 September 2018 – 30 September 2018. Watch this space for further details on the ultimate challenge -a 4 day sponsored cycle ride through the famous Victorian goldfields – Ballarat – Castlemaine – Maldon – Bendigo – Heathcote – Melbourne. Please note – a minimum sponsorship will apply. More details coming soon but do lock the date into your calendar.
ChallengeMD has taken place in cycling through Vietnam 2006, Cambodia 2007, China 2008. Trekking replaced cycling when significant treks where conducted in: Nepal 2009, Mt Blanc 2011 and Atlas Mountains Morocco 2013.

Entertainment Books – For a limited time only, you can purchase a 2018-2019 Entertainment Book. A percentage of the proceeds from each sale will help fund future MDA programs.
Utilise your networks – Does your employer have a workplace giving program? Could you gain support for MDA from your local club or association? Do your friends, family or colleagues have any useful links we could utilise for potential sponsorship?
Organise your own fundraiser – MDA’s events are enhanced by those who organise their own fundraisers in support of MD. There is no end of fun and exciting ways you can support MD by holding your own fundraiser – a fun run, a trivia night, a sponsored walk, a coffee morning, a poker night – the decision is yours!
National Superhero Week – held first week of September. Help to organise support through your local kinder, pre-school, school, workplace in fact anywhere. Dress as the inner hero you are or purchase the assorted exclusive MDA Superhero merchandise.
