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.
 
@colessupermarkets will donate 10 cents from the sale of each Coles Brand Aussie Pork products and 20 cents from each Coles Free Range Aussie Pork products to FightMND during the Big Freeze.
 
Head into your local Coles and put some pork (and maybe a couple extra beanies 😜) in your trolley today.

Thank you to @australianpork for your continued support of FightMND.

MND is a Beast. It is an insidious disease without any effective treatment or a cure. But over the past eight years, FightMND has been able to make real change. With your support, we have invested over $55.9M 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 buys a beanie or donates to FightMND can know that they played a part in making it happen.
