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!

WHAT ARE WE FIGHTING FOR?

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.

There are 10 more sleeps until the AFL Grand Final which is a long time to wait for any footy fan. So why not channel those pre-game nerves into the FightMND #27 Challenge? 

Rally your mates, set a physical activity challenge that embraces the number 27 and have some fun. All funds raised go directly towards FightMND. 

Neale might not be able to get to the GF, but this is one easy way to help support the cause he's most passionate about.

Following Melbourne's historic win on Friday night, a petition to get Neale Daniher to the #AFLGrandFinal has gained more than 63K signatures. While flattered, a humble Neale wanted to share the following message. 

"It's very flattering. However, it’s important that everyone understands this wasn’t initiated by me or anyone I know. I’m not looking for any preferential treatment. I’m just like any other Dees supporter in lockdown - nervous but hopeful we can get it done."

We would also like to flag that the petition is not collecting donations on behalf of FightMND or Neale Daniher. We understand that funds are currently directed to Change.org.

We met Archie from Tassie back in 2020 when he ran 27km and raised more than $2000 as part of the first FightMND 27 Challenge. 

We're thrilled that Archie is back with a new running challenge and an epic finisher. 

Join Archie and choose your own #27Challenge today. Link in bio.
#WomensHealthWeek starts today and we are celebrating by sharing the inspiring story of 27 Challenge ambassador, Bronwyn Watt. 

In 2020, Bronwyn hosted an epic 27-hour spin class, raising more than $21K for FightMND. This year, Bronwyn is getting back on the bike to do it all again.

Women's Health Week is the perfect week to set your #27Challenge goals. If a 27-hour spin class isn't quite your speed, set your own target to run, walk, jump or swim. 

Sign up today, get active, get healthy and start fundraising.

Today, on Father’s Day, we wanted to share some words of inspiration from Neale to acknowledge that things are especially tough for so many in the FightMND Army right now. 

Life isn't always easy, but as Neale reminds us, we should find ways to enjoy the special moments and continue to 'Play On'.
