Shut Up! For MND

Thank you for supporting #TheShutUpChallenge 2023!

Shut Up! For MND is a unique way to bring attention to what many Victorians living with motor neurone disease (MND) face on a daily basis. Each MND journey is different, but a number of people will lose their voice and become reliant on other forms of communication. 

Shut Up! For MND 2023 was held on Thursday 21 September 2023.

Thanks to 1,600+ supporters, we've raised over $114,000!

Over 200 participants took on the Challenge and chose to not speak for 6 - 12 hours to raise awareness and funds to help support people living with MND today, tomorrow and in the future. We were so touched by all the powerful and moving stories that were shared with us - so thank you to everyone who reached out to us in the leadup and on Challenge Day.

"My involvement in the Shut Up for MND fundraiser will directly impact the lives of those affected by MND. The funds raised will go towards supporting MND research initiatives, providing essential care and assistance to patients, and ultimately working towards finding a cure for this devastating disease."
