Team Up for Big Freeze 10!

We’re so excited to bring back Big Freeze for its tenth consecutive year. An important milestone for FightMND as we reflect and celebrate the spirit of community over the past ten years.

Big Freeze is back for 2024!

We know that investing in research continues to be our best weapon against the Beast, but it’s expensive and takes time. Together, we’ve fearlessly fought the beast for 10 years, but there’s more to do.  

So, we go again and will be back at the ‘G’ for the King’s Birthday on Monday 10 June. We’re bringing back the walk, the infamous celebrity slide and all the excitement that’s part of the annual Big Freeze clash between Melbourne and Collingwood!  

​In the words of our patron Neale Daniher ‘It’s not what we say, it’s what we do that matters’. Action over words, so let our collective actions speak louder. Donate today and join us in the fight against the Beast. 

Let our actions speak louder than words!

MND is a Beast. It is an insidious disease without any effective treatment or a cure, but over the past ten years, FightMND has been able to make real change. With your support, we have invested $97 million in research and care initiatives. 

We don’t know when the big breakthrough will come, but when it does, every single person who buys a beanie or donates to FightMND can know that they played a part in making it happen.  

This fight needs everyone playing in harmony, as a team. Not just those who are directly involved like those fighting the disease on the field; the doctors, the specialists, the therapists. It’s everyone off the field too; you, me, your mates, your neighbour, everyone. 

We go again.

MND is a devastating disease and currently, there are more than 2,000 Australians living with MND, with an average life expectancy of just 27 months from diagnosis.  

Today, two Australians will die from MND, and two more will be diagnosed. 

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

The fight against MND is not over, team up for Big Freeze 10 and DO your bit today and donate. Help us find a cure.
