Thanks to everyone in the ever expanding “Community of Darren” for helping us to raise an amazing amount of over $23,000. Your support is so very greatly appreciated. It is only through fundraising such as this that medical research can continue to help find the cause and a cure for MND. It is also so very important that we help others in their battle with this most dreadful disease.

Every little bit you can spare really does make a big difference.

These gorgeous girls loved the MND “Hope” puppies their lovely mum bought them from Darren’s Ride at the R2Rsports Busselton Spring Running Festival yesterday.

Despite the non Spring like weather, it was a great day, well done to all the competitors, volunteers and organisers. Darren’s Ride especially thanks all those who came to see us in the merchandise tent, and generously added to our funds tally for Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA and MNDRIA, the research arm of MND Australia. A special thanks also to the guys and girls from Busselton State Emergency Service for their help on the day.
