A new initiative from NTI will see the insurance company bringing back to life a truck to be auctioned to raise funds for and awareness of Motor Neuron Disease (MND).
It has announced a new initiative bringing together members of the transport industry and community to support the MND and Me Foundation in raising much-needed funds for Motor Neurone Disease.
Over the coming months, NTI will restore a 1946 International Model K5 rigid truck, which will be raffled for the MND and Me Foundation to help people living with the disease.
“The restored, operational truck will be a culmination of time, energy, skill and resources generously contributed by NTI’s people, suppliers, partners and industry affiliates”, said NTI CEO Tony Clark. “It’s a truck built for the community, by the community. It will bring people together and tell a story, while serving a much greater purpose.”
The entire journey will be documented and shared online via a series of webisodes, across NTI’s social media platforms. The truck will be on display in its current state at the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show, where visitors can purchase raffle tickets on the day. Tickets will also be available online following the event, until September.
“The MND and Me Foundation is honoured to be involved in this very exciting project,” said Paul Olds, MND and Me Foundation CEO. “NTI’s efforts will generate better awareness of the impact that Motor Neurone Disease has on the community, and raise vital funds to ensure no one faces MND alone.”
