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.

2020 Daniher's Drive cancelled

Sadly, due to the current uncertainty as a result of COVID-19, FightMND has made the difficult and disappointing decision to cancel the 2020 edition of Daniher’s Drive.

The famous ‘road-trip’ won’t go ahead in 2020 but the organising committee are already putting plans in place to ensure that the event next year will be bigger and better than ever before.

Details regarding the 2021 Daniher’s Drive will be released in due course.
