Shut Up for MND

Shut Up for MND

We are thrilled to announce a special event that took place on September 29th, called Shut Up! For MND Day, and want to give a big shout out to everyone involved, especially to Shane for his incredible efforts. Shane decided to remain silent for 8 hours straight, which was an enormous challenge, and we watched him go through a range of emotions as each hour presented a new communication challenge.


This initiative was created to raise awareness and support for the 476 Victorians who have been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). By showing some love and attention to this cause, we can help ease their pain and overcome the many challenges they face.


We want to congratulate Shane on his incredible accomplishment in raising an impressive $2,454! This money will go directly to MND clients to assist in the purchase of equipment and services needed on their journey.


We had some incredible highlights from the day, including a visit from Liv from Essendon AFLW who addressed the team and sat down with Shane for a Q&A session. We were also lucky enough to have Zoe from Keo Care, a recent graduate speech pathologist, who addressed the team in a stand-up in the tech department. We learned more about Zoe's role in supporting MND clients and the communication challenges they face.


We want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported Shane throughout the day, and especially to the FLM team who worked tirelessly to make the event a success. It was humbling to watch everyone come together to support such a great cause.


As a leader of this wonderful group of people, I am so proud and privileged to be part of this amazing team.
