It's time to Beanie On, Play On

Highlights from Big Freeze 8

Relive all the fun and excitement from Big Freeze 8.



As MND Awareness Week comes to a close, we'd like to take a moment to recognise those people who are living with MND and those we have lost.

MND is a Beast. It knows no borders and touches every corner of our community. As we fight to find treatments and a cure, we do so in honour of everyone who has been impacted by this devastating disease.

To those currently fighting the Beast, your courage never fails to inspire us. �

To mark Global MND Awareness Day, we couldn't be more excited to announce that Big Freeze 8 has raised an incredible $19.8 million for FightMND! This makes it our most successful Big Freeze ever! 

Thanks to every donation, we will be able to invest this record-breaking figure into vital research to find effective treatments and one day a cure for MND. 

To everyone who donated, bought a beanie, volunteered or held a community fundraiser – thank you! We simply couldn't continue the battle against the Beast without your support. 

And to those who have been impacted by or are living with MND, you continue to inspire us. You are the reason why we won't stop until better treatments and a cure is found.

Today is Global MND Awareness Day, and we'd like to take this opportunity to recognise the incredible work being done every day by the researchers working on the front line in the battle against the Beast. It is thanks to your tireless efforts that we can continue working towards our goal of a world without MND.

This Saturday, FightMND is heading over to South Australia, turning the Adelaide Oval blue with a sea of Big Freeze beanies. 

From 11:15am, FightMND volunteers will be outside the Oval, selling beanies and collecting donations while Port Adelaide gear up to take on the Sydney Swans. 

Keen to get involved? We're on the lookout for some more volunteers to sign up and help out at the game. Plus, volunteers who join us on the day will also receive a free ticket to the match!

Visit the link in our bio for more information and to sign up. We can’t wait to see you there!
You might have seen some of our fabulous volunteers walking around Melbourne in their white shirts yesterday. These incredible volunteers came out and donated their time and efforts to help make this year's Big Freeze bigger and better than ever! 

To our volunteers, whether you were collecting donations or selling beanies, we can't thank you all enough for all your time and enthusiasm. FightMND would not be able to make the difference we do if it weren't for the generosity of every volunteer who lends a hand. 

Thank you all for everything!
Big Freeze 8 went off with a bang! 🎆💙 What were your favourite moments?

Road Trip! Did you know the Big Freeze festivities are making their way to WA? Over in Perth, Optus Stadium is hosting it's very own Mini Freeze, featuring some of the biggest names in the west taking the plunge into icey cold waters. You can then catch the West Coast Eagles take on Geelong as Western Australia joins the battle against the Beast. 

FightMND vollies will also be there before the game on Saturday 18 June, selling Big Freeze beanies and collecting donations. 

Follow along on the @westcoasteagles socials as they announce their "dunkers" taking on the MND Dunk Tank at the game.
We did it! Together we have done something incredible.

Thanks to everyone who donated, we will be able to invest this money in helping the best and brightest minds and the most promising research get one step closer to a world without MND.

To everyone who donated or bought a beanie this Big Freeze, you have made this possible.

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.
