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.

2021 Daniher's Drive - expression of interest
The planning for the 2021 Daniher’s Drive is well underway and it promises to be another great fun event so now is the time to register an expression of interest to be involved.
The famous 4-day regional road-trip was unable to go ahead in 2020 due to the restrictions presented by Coronavirus so the organising committee are busy working on making amends and presenting an event that is one not to be missed.
Details regarding the 2021 Daniher’s Drive will be released in due course but places are limited so let us know if you are interested in more information by clicking the button below.
