Drive for MND 2017

ByLidija Despotovski

This year marks the 15th year since our family lost our Ann Whiteman to Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Time certainly doesn’t stand still. Unfortunately there is still no known cause and no cure for this ghastly disease (so aptly named “The Beast” by football legend Neale Daniher).

As many of you know, Ray White Western Australia and the Whiteman Family have been sponsors of the Drive for MND (formerly the MND Drive) for the past four years.

In 2017 we will again help “Drive” this key initiative in the hope of providing CARE, one day a CURE and for now the obvious much needed SUPPORT for people living with MND and their families.

The Drive is scheduled to run from November 10th to 12th this year and we will work our way north, from Perth to Dongara and back to raise much needed funds and awareness. All proceeds of this year’s Drive will be directed back through the Motor Neurone Disease Association WA.

I attach for your attention a flyer inviting you, your family and your colleagues to the launch event for this year’s DRIVE.

We would dearly love to see you there.
