MND Week is celebrated nationally in the first full week of May every year. MND Associations work together during this week to raise awareness of MND to realise our vision of a world free from MND.
The MND Association of Tasmania depends on volunteers. The Committee is grateful to those people who attend Support Group meetings, support MND Awareness Week, organise fundraising activities and send in donations.
This year, our Button Day is on Wednesday 8th May. We are looking for volunteers to participate in collections and raising awareness on the streets. We also have merchandise boxes (with pens, cornflowers, wrist bands) for placement at businesses and workplaces.
