For the last 5 years, the MND and Me Foundation having focused on achieving our mission – To Care and to Cure. That means financing and delivering support programs and funding research into treatments and a cure for MND.

The Challenge

The Great Southern Crossing is a virtual cycling charity challenge for teams of up to five riders that launched on 1 September 2016.

Throughout the event, cyclists log their kilometres on their regular rides using Strava or MapMyFitness and track their progress to see how far they can go on the epic 5,200km virtual route crossing Australia, all while raising funds for their favourite cause.

The route for Great Southern Crossing. 5,200 kms.

To Care and to Cure

The MND and Me Foundation supports people and their families living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Built on the support of volunteers the Foundation funds and delivers programs to ensure those who impacted by this fatal and awful disease are supported.

The only way we will ever see a world without Motor Neurone Disease is via funding research, therefore the Foundation also funds research into treatments and a cure for MND.

The MND and Me Foundation was established by Scott Sullivan, a husband and father of two children, who was diagnosed with MND in 2010 at the age of 38. Scott sadly died in April 2014.
