FAQ

We hope that this registration process has been easy for you, but below is some information that will answer any questions you may have.

Registration
I am having trouble registering, what should I do?

Please contact the Fundraising team at (03) 9830 2122 or fundraising@mnd.asn.au

How do I receive my Walk T-shirt and mask?

After you have registered, your t-shirt and mask will be mailed to you within two weeks. Please be patient if there is a slight delay, our team (and Australia Post), will do their absolute best through these difficult times. 

Does my registration fee go to the cause?

No, your registration fee covers the operational cost of putting on the Walk. However all fundraising dollars will be used to deliver care and support to people with MND, as well as help fund research into cause, treatment and cure.

Is my registration tax deductible?

No your registration fee isn’t tax deductible but all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Can I add people to my team after I purchased my ticket?

Absolutely and we encourage that! On your team fundraising page, click on “invite members” located under the team members section at the bottom of the page. From here, insert up to five (5) team invitations at a time.

Fundraising
How do I fundraise?

There are many ways to do this. Start by asking family, friends and work colleagues to support you by donating to your fundraising page. Share the reasons why you're participating on your fundraising page and share this on social media. Depending on where you live and what restrictions are in place, you may be able to host a small event to help raise funds too.  

If you need suggestions please contact: fundraising@mnd.asn.au

How do I create a fundraising page?

When you register you will automatically be set up with a fundraising page. You will receive an email (check your spam email if you don’t receive it) with a link so you can view, edit and share your fundraising page.  

We encourage you to upload photos and tell everyone the reason why you think it’s important to raise funds and how those funds will help people in Victoria living with the disease.

How do I create a Team?

Login to your fundraising page and view the dashboard. On the right side of the page there is a box titled “create a new team”. Enter your team name and then click “create”. Final step is to share this with your family, friends and colleagues and ask them to join your team.

What happens to the funds raised?

All funds raised will help deliver care, support and vital assistive equipment to people living with MND.  In addition, funds will be used to support research into finding cause, potential treatment and cure.

Do I have to fundraise?

No, but funds raised throughout our Walk to D'Feet MND: Tour of Victoria are a vitally important part of our fundraising activities. This is MND Victoria's only fundraising event since the Covid-19 Pandemic began! We do therefore encourage everyone to fundraise and can provide ideas and resources to help you get this started. Your support will mean so much to so many!  For more information contact: fundraising@mnd.asn.au

I am having issues with my fundraising page, what can I do?

Please contact fundraising@mnd.asn.au and we will help you sort out any issues.

How are tax receipts generated?

Whenever anyone makes a donation to your fundraising page a tax receipt will be automatically generated and sent via email to the person making the donation.

When does my fundraising page close?

Your fundraising page will remain open for one month after the Walk event takes place.

The Tour of Victoria 
Where will the event take place?

We would all love to be walking in person and as an MND community at our usual Walk to D'Feet MND. Due to Covid-19 that is not possible so we have come up with a solution! We are encouraging you to walk 1km a day (in your brand new t-shirt and mask) between November 2nd - November 15th in your own neighbourhoods. As a community, we will be walking through each of MND Victoria's 14 MND Advisor regions across the state. Follow along online to find out the relevant information about each area everyday!

Can I register throughout the 14 day event?

Absolutely. We will be taking registrations right up until November 15th. However we do encourage registration prior to the beginning of the event so we can get your t-shirt and mask to you in time! We would also love you to promote your fundraising as early as possible.

Do I have to walk everyday?

No, it is totally up to you, however getting out in your Walk to D'Feet MND t-shirt and mask is a great way to spread awareness of MND, MND Victoria and the reasons you are taking part in this event. We would also love to see photos of you out and about if possible!

What information will I learn each day?

Everyday we will put the spotlight on a different MND Advisor and the region they cover. You will find out information about the Advisor, some stats such as how many people are currently living with MND in the area and maybe some personal stories or previous events that have been held in the area! Each day will be something a little different!


What happens on the final day?

November 15th is a day we can all celebrate together. We will have a live stream event on Facebook where we will thank everyone who has been involved. We will interview participants, people living with MND, carers, sponsors, staff and many others! We will share fundraising stories and talk about how the funds that have been raised will be used. If you'd like to share your story and nominate someone to be apart of the live stream event please get in touch with us at fundraising@mnd.asn.au

Merchandise
Can I buy Merchandise?

MND Victoria has a wide range of merchandise available with all profits going to support Victorians living with MND.  All merchandise can be viewed and ordered here.

All merchandise orders received on-line will be mailed to you.


What if my MND clothing is the wrong size?

We will happily exchange any clothing items provided they are returned unworn. Contact us to discuss further fundraising@mnd.asn.au
