This year we called on you to embody the words of our Co-founder and Patron, Neale Daniher and use your actions over your words. Don’t Say. Do.  

And act you did! Thanks to your support, we’ve raised a record-breaking $20.1 million during Big Freeze 10. 

This achievement would not be possible without the incredible generosity of our partners, supporters, suppliers and the Australian community.  

We recognise that many Australians are doing it tough right now. To everyone who dug deep and purchased a Beanie, a sweater or pair of socks, or who donated generously throughout Big Freeze 10, thank you. Your support has helped make this our biggest result ever! 

Our Programs team is working hard to invest these funds into vital MND cure and care initiatives. We look forward to sharing more information about these initiatives with you when we announce our grants later in 2024.  

The funds raised during Big Freeze 10 adds to the $97 million FightMND has invested into vital MND cure and care initiatives. Our Impact page has more information about how your support has made a read difference in research outcomes and improving the lives of people impacted by MND.  

Ten years of the Big Freeze is truly a milestone. As we reflect on the blows we’ve made to the Beast together, we recognise that the job is not over. This was never a battle that was going to be won in a sprint. We still have work to do, and we need your help to do it.  

Stay tuned over the coming months more information about Daniher’s Drive and, of course, Big Freeze 11. We hope that you can continue to join us in the fight against the Beast that is MND.  

We go again.
