Thousands raised for MND research
Operations Manager James Dullard and his team have returned home from a four day adventure to Victoria’s south eastern corner, all in support of Daniher’s Drive (see News and Media story here).
The event saw over 250 participants travel over 1000 kms around Victoria to raise funds and awareness for MND. Team Consumption set a fundraising target of $4000 and absolutely smashed it, raising over $12,000 for the cause.
Although the event is only in its second year, it has already raised an impressive amount of money for the cause with the 2016 Drive alone raising over $1,300,000. James said the event far exceeded his already high expectations and he’s already thinking about next year.
“Getting Neale and all our old school mates together again felt just like old times. There was no shortage of witty banter and we had lots of laughs over the space of the weekend,” said James.
“The community support for the event was incredible, every town we stopped at we were greeted by smiling faces and extraordinarily generous people emptying their pockets for cause.
“I would like to personally thank everyone who got behind our fundraising efforts especially all CFA members, your kind words and donations have been greatly appreciated.
“I will definitely be getting involved next year; it was a great weekend of rekindling old friendships and raising money and awareness to find a cure for MND.”
If there are any footy fans out there who would like to purchase a poster signed by all four Daniher brothers (pictured above), James has two posters left! The money raised from the sale of the posters will go directly to finding a cure for MND.
