Donations from our members and supporters are vital for the health of New Zealanders, both now and in the future.
The Neurological Foundation continues to strive to make a difference to those with neurological conditions by raising money to fund research into the very best neurological research here in New Zealand.
The Neurological Foundation of NZ has been working since the 1970s to help fund research into diseases and conditions of the brain, spine and nervous system. One in five New Zealanders will develop a neurological condition of some sort during their life time - the answers lie in the research as much as the treatments.

Wow - we have had such great feedback after the ODT ran the front page article of Austen. Where are we at? So far Austen has got himself some new shoes which has sorted out a bit of an issue that we were having when he starts to fatigue. He was starting to clip his feet as the muscles that bring your toes up got tired (a side effect of his spinal cord injury). After the article Austen has had some good pool sessions, a run with Trev and back into the gym next week....with exams coming up its a bit of self imposed rest and starting to get the distances up. We haven't had a run together for a few weeks so we have a 10km planned for next weekend....and I am hoping to keep up this time! Thanks for all the donations to date - we have an aim to get to $5000 so every little bit helps! Thanks Mark Shirley - Physiotherapist
