Thank you!

Thanks to your amazing support, Big Freeze 7 has raised an incredible, record breaking $14.6 million.

MND is a Beast. It is an insidious disease without any effective treatment or a cure. But over the past seven years FightMND has been able to make real change. With your support we have invested over $48M in research that is beginning to show real promise.

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

Although we couldn’t march this year or fill the MCG, we know you were with us the whole way. From Neale, and all of us at FightMND we say thank you. Because of your support we will ‘Play On’ and beat the Beast together.

Help us beat the Beast

Your support helped us raise an additional $2 million in just four days!

MND doesn’t stop and nor do we. We need to continue to fund the best research to end the suffering of families living with MND.

Please donate above or buy a beanie from Coles, Coles Express or Bunnings. And if you pick up some Aussie Pork from Coles, 10-20 cents from the sale of a whole lot of Coles Aussie Pork products will be donated to FightMND.

Together we can beat the Beast that is MND.


The "Play On" Story

This year, we’ve included the words ‘Play On’ on the beanies. When faced with adversity we all have the decision to surrender or keep up the fight.

We need you to ‘Play On’ and keep fighting alongside us as we take on the ‘Beast’.

Every beanie purchased counts. Each dollar raised – no matter how small – is a stepping stone to finding a cure, and with your support, we hope to continue this momentum and give those diagnosed hope and something to smile about.
