To cure, to care,
to make aware.
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.

With the support of Tennis Australia, and the Australian Open, we are serving it up the debilitating disease and are ready to SmashMND again in 2019.
In 2018, we joined forces for the first time to raise funds for MND and to create greater awareness of ‘The Beast’ that is Motor Neurone Disease.
The partnership continues in 2019 with full details of how you can be involved to be announced in the coming weeks.

Big Freeze 5
Our fifth installment of ‘Big Freeze at the G’ will play host to another group of courageous celebrity sliders that take the plunge into the most famous pool of ice at the MCG on the Queen’s Birthday holiday in 2019, raising awareness and funds for our fight against MND.
In 2018, we achieved an incredible result, raising over $6.5million for Big Freeze 4.
Big Freeze 5 will be held on June 10, 2019 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground ahead of the annual Queen’s Birthday clash between Collingwood and Melbourne Football Clubs.
