To FightMND, it’s an all in fight. Together, we must join the battle against the Beast that is MND. Now in our ninth year, we’re louder and stronger than ever.

Fight for Neale. Fight for those who have fought and continue to fight. Fight for a cure. Don a Big Freeze 9 Beanie and join us. It takes people to beat the Beast.

To FightMND, join the all in fight!


At FightMND, we are driven by a singular and urgent vision - a world free of Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Through the collective efforts of our community and organisation, we will raise awareness and fund vital research to improve the quality of life and find a cure for those living with MND.

Our purpose is to champion hope and lead the fight against MND.

Make a Donation

Currently, more than 2,000 Australians are living with MND, and their average life expectancy is only 27 months.

With ongoing support, FightMND can make targeted investments in cutting-edge projects focused on fast-tracking new treatments and driving discoveries towards a cure.

Donate today and show us you’re all in with helping us to find a cure.
