Help us beat the Beast

Your support helped us raise an additional $2 million in just four days!

MND doesn’t stop and nor do we. We need to continue to fund the best research to end the suffering of families living with MND.

Please donate above or buy a beanie from Coles, Coles Express or Bunnings. And if you pick up some Aussie Pork from Coles, 10-20 cents from the sale of a whole lot of Coles Aussie Pork products will be donated to FightMND.

Together we can beat the Beast that is MND.


The "Play On" Story

This year, we’ve included the words ‘Play On’ on the beanies. When faced with adversity we all have the decision to surrender or keep up the fight.

We need you to ‘Play On’ and keep fighting alongside us as we take on the ‘Beast’.

Every beanie purchased counts. Each dollar raised – no matter how small – is a stepping stone to finding a cure, and with your support, we hope to continue this momentum and give those diagnosed hope and something to smile about.

Over the weekend and the past few days our lovely Bakery staff have been showing their support and proudly wearing their MND Beanies! 

Found in 2014 FightMND was established with the purpose of finding effective treatments and a ultimately a cure for Motor Neurone Disease!

It’s average timeframe is just 27 months, so help fight MND and donate to fightmnd by either donating money or buying one of the beanies! 

The beanies are still available at colessupermarkets and bunnings so get in and support the cause and MND research!

Rice played 234 games with both St Kilda and Carlton, including Blues' thumping 61-point win over Geelong in the 1995 Grand Final. 

Thanks Dean for taking part in our big day.  In accordance with the COVID protocols, Dean will remotely perform the ice bucket challenge to FightMND. You can donate to make it happen at and comment 'Dean Rice' in the 'Message of Support'. Link in bio ⬆️

The Westworth family name is institutionalised in the Mornington Junior Football League. The family have been playing in the League since the 1970s. Our own former club president, Mick Westworth, follows in the footsteps of his dad, who was also a club president, as well as League president.

Mick is one of the most respected blokes around our club, and although he has stepped down from official roles, remains a great support and mentor to those who follow. It's been a family affair for the Westworths, who have been the club for eight years with Taj and Matilda playing all of their junior footy at Beleura, and wife Sarah a trainer. 

Mick has been nominated to take the ice bucket challenge by club sponsor bridgestonemornington  who have put up $100 to see Mick get drenched in ice water on Sunday. 

Thanks Bridgestone! If you would also like to add to the tally, you can donate at and comment 'Westy' in the 'Message of Support'.
