National Transport Insurance
(NTI) has teamed up with not-for-profit organisation MND and Me Foundation Ltd in raising awareness of motor neurone disease (MND), a cause close to their hearts, as their former CEO Wayne Patterson was diagnosed with the disease.
Explained NTI, MND is an incurable and degenerative disease which affects the nerves controlling the muscles that allow people to move, speak, breathe, and swallow. In Australia, two people are diagnosed with this fatal illness each day.
The partnership will be raising awareness and funds for MND and ME Foundation at a series of national and local events. The first of which events is a fundraising endeavour, where 14 teams of NTI people will participate in the Great Southern Crossing virtual cycling challenge.
The month-long challenge, which began in 1 September, will see teams of five cycling on the virtual route across Australia in a bid to raise awareness and funds in support of MND and Me Foundation.
