A big welcome to our new charity partner for 2016, the MND and Me Foundation. We are excited to partner with this group and look forward to working with CEO, Paul Olds and his team to increase awareness of MND among event riders, and their friends and families.
Founded by Scott Sullivan in 2011 after he was diagnosed with the disease, the MND and Me Foundation saw the desperate need to assist people living with MND and their families to maintain their independence and quality of life for as long as possible. The Foundation contributes financially toward research into finding a cure, but until one is found, our major objectives are to ensure those who have to live with this terrible disease and their families are supported by the Foundation.
The MND and Me Foundation will join Guide Dogs Queensland to form our two chosen charities for 2016, with proceeds of this event going towards these two wonderful organisations.
