When the remarkable Fr. Tony Coote did his extraordinary walk last year from Donegal to Cork – some 550 kilometers – he raised over €600,000! The proceeds were split between the IMNDA and Research Motor Neurone. From these miraculous funds, we were able to employ a fourth nurse.

Fr. Tony very sadly passed away on 28th August but his wonderful legacy of action and inspiration will continue to live on. It’s now up to all of us to ensure that Walk While You Can continues to raise urgently needed funds for people living with MND.

To honour Fr. Tony’s incredible achievement over 1000 people of a...

    Following the death of Father Tony Coote, Chief Executive of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Roisin Duffy said, “From the moment he was diagnosed, Father Tony Coote not only bore his illness with tremendous dignity, he also became a tireless advocate for everyone living with MND. His decision to travel 550 kilometres from Donegal to Cork last year was testament to his resilience and determination. The €600,000 raised is already making a real impact on Ireland’s MND community. On September 14th, that community will again “Walk While You Can” in Father Tony’s memory, as he would have wanted. To Father Tony’s family and wide circle of friends, we at the IMNDA offer our deepest sympathies at this difficult time. We pledge to honour his memory, and continue to support his vision for a world free of MND.”

About the Cause

The IMNDA also provides financial assistance towards home care. Four MND nurses undertake home visits to our clients across the country. We do not r...
