Bridge climb for Rodney

By Patricia Burke

This Blue Cornflower Day, I am climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge to raise awareness about motor neurone disease, and to show support for people currently living with MND.

Greg and I are doing this climb in memory of Greg's brother Rodney who died in April after 2 years of dealing with the devastating effects of MND. 

The blue cornflower (Centaurea Cyanus) was adopted as the national symbol of hope for MND because of its fragile appearance but hardy nature. Like the cornflower, people with MND show remarkable strength in coping with this devastating disease. Unfortunately there is no cure for MND.

By supporting my Bridge Climb with a donation, you will be helping MND NSW continue to provide equipment, education and support for hundreds of people living with MND, as well as to assist and provide information for their families, carers and healthcare professionals.

Thank you for your support - and every donation over $2 is tax-deductible.

Thank you to my Sponsors
