Thank youOver $25,000 raised, thank you all so very much!

We say a huge thank you to all who have joined Darren’s Ride, and helped us to raise over $25,000 to fund the desperately needed medical research to find a cure for MND, and to support others in their own fight back against this awful disease.

Thank you to Robin for her beautiful handicrafts, made with so much love for Darren, which have kicked us over the line. Words really can’t express our gratitude to all those who have helped and supported us in any way on our journey so far, what a wonderful legacy we have all created for Darren, and every little dollar we can raise really does make a big difference.

Stay tuned for more updates as Darren’s Ride goes on…together we will one day get to a world free from MND.

mndA little bit of “Hope” can bring a lot of happiness…

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.
