Help us Fight MND

We need your help to fight Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This means freezing some of the most famous Australian sporting personalities in ice-cold water in front of a blockbuster football crowd on the 12th of June 2017.

All money raised goes towards vital MND research into finding potential treatments and a cure for Australian MND patients. Let’s #FightMND

What Is the Big Freeze?

Motor Neurone Disease Fundraiser at the MCG

The Big Freeze is hosted annually at the MCG on the Queen’s Birthday weekend and is the main fundraising event for FightMND. We ‘freeze’ several well-known Australian personalities by sliding them into a giant pool of ice before the blockbuster Melbourne vs Collingwood AFL game on June 12th 2017.

On the 2nd of June, Neale Daniher will announce the first slider for this years event and the public appeal for donations is launched. As the campaign unfolds, the first slider then gets to nominate the next in line to freeze for MND. The challenge then continues with each slider nominating the next until all ten are announced to the public through a range of media outlets.

Once all sliders are revealed we’ll meet at the MCG on Monday June 12th to send our celebs down the slide into the ice water to help FightMND.

The Impact of MND

Neale Daniher's Fight

Patron of FightMND

Diagnosed with MND in 2013, Neale inspires many with his continued determination to live life to the fullest, and to face the challenges this beast of a disease brings with courage, grace and humour.

His drive to help prevent the suffering of Australians who may be diagnosed with this disease in the future is unprecedented.

In addition, perhaps the most inspiring part of the movement Neale leads, is the knowledge that the fight is unlikely to be won in time to save him. This fight is for the future, for others, for the two that will be diagnosed today, tomorrow and every day thereafter until a cure is found.

In the lead up to the Big Freeze, we’re calling on ​all Australians to help​ FightMND. We won't stop until there are effective treatments and ultimately a cure for MND.

The FightMND brand is the new logo that represents our Foundation and you will see Fight MND leading all our campaigns and projects, including The Big Freeze and Daniher's Drive.

We call on everyone to FightMND as two Australians dying every day and two Australians being diagnosed every day is too many. We simply don’t accept that there is no treatment or cure for MND.

2015 Sliders

In its inaugural year, the 2015 Big Freeze event was a huge success and saw the following ambassadors freeze for MND: Dermott Brereton, Sam Newman, Sam Lane, Mick Molloy, Peter Helliar, Luke Darcy, Garry Lyon, Mark Robinson, Tim Watson, Bryan Taylor, and Ross Stevenson.

2016 Sliders

In 2016, the second Big Freeze event raised more than $6.1 million, and since launching in December 2014, FightMND has invested every cent donated during the Big Freeze campaigns to funding vital MND research.
