Big Freeze 7

An action packed day with a record breaking result! A massive thank you to everyone who bought a beanie and donated to make Big Freeze 7 such a success!

Meet our Big Freeze 7 sliders!


The "Play On" Story

This year, we included the words ‘Play On’ on the Big Freeze 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. With your support, we hope to continue this momentum and give those diagnosed hope and something to smile about.

Every beanie sold takes us another step closer to finding effective treatments or a cure for MND.

Funds raised during the Big Freeze are invested in vital and urgent MND research.

It's time to Beanie On, Play On!

You better be quick - these beanies will sell out!

Our superstar volunteers play a huge role in the success of the Big Freeze 8 - we simply couldn't do it without them!

Caroline is one of our Beanie HQ vollies. She's an intensive care nurse who has been helping us pack and send out beanies since Big Freeze 2!

"I've seen the impact of MND - as a nurse and as a friend/colleague so I know how horrible this disease is. I enjoy volunteering with FightMND because I get to meet a whole lot of enthusiastic people who want to do what they can to fight back against MND."

Want to help volunteer? We're now recruiting in VIC, SA, WA, NSW and QLD. Click the link in our bio to find out more and register!
For the fifth year in a row, Coles Aussie Pork Farmers have come together in partnership with Coles and joined FightMND in the fight against the Beast.
