Motor Neurone Disease NZ
The 2024 New Zealand Masters Games is proud to support Motor Neurone Disease NZ as our Charity Partner.
Motor Neurone Disease NZ is a charitable trust dedicated to making time count for people living with MND and their loved ones, and funding research and clinical trials for a future without MND.
Motor neurone disease (MND) is a fatal, rapidly progressing neurological disease that leaves people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk, and eventually breathe.
Known as ALS in some countries, there is currently no truly effective treatment and no cure. Most people with the disease live for 20-48 months after symptoms begin.
You can support the work of MND NZ, by making a $5 donation when you register to particpate in the 2024 New Zealand Masters Games.
