We all need a little motivation to get moving in these crazy times we find ourselves in—it’s why I’ve signed up to this virtual challenge event, Australia Moves for MND! The best part is I’m doing it to raise funds and awareness for a cause I really believe in—MND Victoria.

Founded in 1981, MND Victoria currently supports 443 people with motor neurone disease plus their family and carers. That’s a whole lot of people when you add them all up. It’s why our community is so amazing and so strong and also why we’re so thankful to everyone who helps us out (I’m looking at you *wink wink*).

It’s not an exaggeration to say MND Victoria wouldn’t be able to do what they do without community fundraisers. Things like providing equipment (think electric wheelchairs, communication devices, electric beds and walking frames) to help keep people with MND at home, running an Infoline so people can get the information they need when they need it, organising a range of education workshops and seminars, as well as raising funds for research.

By signing up for this challenge I’m hoping to make a real difference, get fitter and connect with you and the rest of the MND community, raising funds and awareness for this cause I really believe in.

Week 3 was a huge week!! The support and love shown from lots of different people, friends, family, it means the world to me <3 Thank you to those who donated this week, together we raised $1,090 which lucky me meant 1,090 burpees to smash out! I won't lie it was extremely challenging to get them all done, but I was determined to finish them all and finish with a smile :) <3
