For the third year in a row, Adelaide is about to be taken over by FightMND and the 27 Challenge thanks to Bronwyn Watt and her Sister Love 27 Hour Spin Challenge. 

In honour of her sister, who passed away from MND in June this year, 450 people will continuously pedal 17 spin bikes on the Glenelg Foreshore for a consecutive 27 hours to help find a cure for MND. This year they're hoping to raise over $100,000 as part of the FightMND 27 Challenge. 

You can get involved and take on your own challenge by clicking the link in our bio and signing up today. 

You can also read more about Bronwyn and her incredible 27 Challenge at the link in our bio.
A huge congratulations to Simon Hicks from Team Lorna's Cobram Crew who on Saturday night won the Daniher's Drive @jaycoaustralia raffle. He was stoked to become the proud owner of a Jayco Starcraft Bushback Caravan generously donated by our friends at Jayco. An added bonus is that he was in the room at Lardner Park when his name was called.

Simon, his siblings Naomi and Warren, lost their mother Lorna to MND in 2002 and have been long-time supporters of FightMND.

The raffle helped raise more than $200,000 for FightMND, making it our most successful raffle ever! Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket.
As the major partner of Daniher's Drive, Chemist Warehouse are proud to join us in the fight against the Beast.

Kicking off today until 30 November, head into your local Chemist Warehouse and make a donation to FightMND at the counter. All funds raised go to vital MND research and care to improve the lives of people living with MND.

With 485 stores nationwide, head to Chemist Warehouse online to find a store near you.

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.
