Big Freeze update
We are delighted to announce that Big Freeze 7 will remain at the MCG.
The Melbourne vs Collingwood Queen’s Birthday clash will move to the SCG on June 14. However, in line with our Patron Neale Daniher’s mantra of ‘Play On’, the Big Freeze will take place as planned, pre-game at the MCG, on the traditional Queen’s Birthday Monday.
We’d like to take this moment to thank the Victorian Government for their support. We are also immensely grateful for our partners Channel 7, the Melbourne Cricket Club, and the AFL.
We are devastated that the FightMND Army won’t be with us this year but we know you will be there in spirit, and watching the Big Freeze slide action on Channel 7.
In the meantime make sure you buy a beanie at Coles, Coles Express, Bunnings or fightmnd.org.au, and donate at fightmnd.org.au. Let’s ‘Play On’ and beat the Beast that is MND.
Stay tuned to our social media for more updates.
