Introducing Kathryn's Story

This time of the year is tough for those who have lost family members. Kathryn has lost 11 relatives to familial MND.

We can't fund the critical MND research without your help.

Help us continue to fight against the Beast that is MND.

Thank you for helping us fight the Beast in 2023

We are fighting to defeat the Beast

FightMND is driven by a single and urgent purpose – to find effective treatments and a cure for Motor Neurone Disease.

We have invested more than $63 million in the fight against the Beast. But the battle is far from over.

FightMND invests $20.2M in the fight against MND in 2023

What are we fighting for?

We are fighting to beat 'The Beast'

Our vision is a world without Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and it takes an army of people to help achieve this.

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 MND 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.

On Sunday, over 650 people ran the @melbmara and chose to raise funds for FightMND. Bryan was a participant and trained for four months. 

Bryan went from being able to take 100 steps in the hydro-pool and worked his way up to 2000 steps in preparation for Sunday’s 3km walk. Congratulations Bryan and thank you for raising vital funds for FightMND.
