The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association will hold its annual fundraising walk at Castletown House in Celbridge this Saturday afternoon, July 16.

‘Walk to D-Feet MND’ will start at 12 midday in the grounds of the historic stately home.

The route is buggy and wheelchair accessible and kids walk for free.

Registration is €20 for adults and this includes a t-shirt and other goodies.

“Walking 5K can help the IMNDA to continue providing care for over 350 families across Ireland,” said Naas woman Maeve Leahy of IMNDA.

Registration can be paid online or on the day, all children under the age of 12 go free.

MND is a progressive neurological condition that leaves people unable to do the everyday things that the rest of us take for granted. Walking, talking and swallowing may become virtually impossible. MND strikes people of all ages and there is no cure.

The IMNDA is dedicated to providing care and services for people with Motor Neurone Disease, their carers and families as well as supporting research into the causes and treatments of MND.
