Children who have a neuromuscular condition and their families, just like Neil and his parents Kuldeep and Yasha, are among those who will be impacted by the funds raised during Roll 1k for MDA. You can read Neil’s story here.
Kiwis, young and old, with a lived experience of muscular dystrophy, and who are members of the Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Zealand, benefit from our vital Fieldwork Service.
Take part in Roll 1k for MDA and you’ll be helping to ensure this essential service reaches the people who need it most.
Fieldworkers provide personalised support through the diagnosis, by walking alongside people and their families during times of grief and change, offering information and advice about conditions, facilitating service access through referrals or advocacy, or reducing isolation by linking people to others with shared experience.
They also meet with teachers, health professionals and disability support staff to improve their understanding of neuromuscular conditions, which enables them to provide even better services and supports for our members.
Sign up today to roll for MDA – you’ll be making a world of difference to the lives of members just like Neil and his parents.
