“Just a final note to thank you all for your donations. The Stumblebums exceeded our target and hit a total of $15,920. You may have seen the media reports indicating that the total raised by the inaugural Daniher’s Drive was in excess of $1m.
The organisers tell us it’s going to be above $1.1m by the time they finalise the count later this week - a great result. It’s also really positive that this money will be applied to global leading research work by the Cure for MND Foundation lead by Dr Ian Davis.
Ian explained during the Drive the links that the Foundation is making with other leading research bodies around the world to ensure these skinny resources are applied efficiently and with the best chances of making a difference. As Neale explained, he and Ian are dedicating themselves to raising funds so that there’s a greater chance future generations won’t have to suffer what each of them is experiencing. So they are keen to make sure it is well spent.
