Neale's Speech

With lockdowns impacting so many
of us right now, what better time to hear from the man who taught us what it is to 'Play On'?

Every year, Neale gives an inspirational speech to the Melbourne and Collingwood Football Clubs. This year, with son Ben, Neale also shared his wisdom with West Coast and Essendon.

What are we fighting for?

We are fighting to beat 'The Beast'

We want a world without Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and it takes an army of people to help achieve this – and we have the FightMND Army on our side.

Our core aims are to generate greater awareness of the disease, to fund world-class research and drug trials to find an effective treatment and ultimately a cure for Motor Neurone Disease and provide assistive care equipment to many Australians fighting the disease.

There is no known cause, limited knowledge of the natural course of the disease, there is no effective treatment and there is no cure.

We call it ‘The Beast’. This is why we fight.
