Sept 27-Nov 27
The FightMND 27 Challenge
It’s time to sign up for the 27 Challenge and fundraise for FightMND and for further research into MND as we strive to create a world free of MND.
The number 27 represents the average life expectancy of someone diagnosed with MND – just 27 months from diagnosis. That is what we want to change and with your help we can.
The FightMND 27 Challenge is aimed at getting active, having fun and bringing family and friends together, either physically or virtually. while embracing the number 27.
The choice is yours!
You can walk, run, cycle, roll, jump, swim, spin, do push-ups, sit-ups or mix it up over 27 days. You can use the 27 Challenge Mix ‘n Match grid and choose some or all of the activities to complete – it’s up to you!
How will you embrace 27? Will it be with minutes, hours, kilometres, laps, goals or something else?
Good luck and enjoy your challenge

Big Freeze 6
Each year, a group of ‘A-List’ celebrities take the icy plunge sliding into the Big Freeze pool all in the name of raising critical funds to help fine a treatment and cure for MND. Due to the restrictions in place as a result of COVID-19, the Big Freeze extravaganza will look different in 2020, but will have the same degree of excitement and purpose as previous years. There won’t be a Queen’s Birthday slide this year but players from all 18 AFL clubs have signed up to participate in their own ‘ice challenge’.
June 20 & 21, 2020
Sockit2MND is an MND awareness and fundraising-themed round for all sporting clubs be they metro suburban or regional Australia. Sporting clubs including AFL, netball, basketball, soccer, rugby, hockey and more are invited to support FightMND by getting involved, purchasing pairs of the now iconic blue socks for their teams and wearing them proudly on the dedicated Sockit2MND round on June 20 & 21, 2020.
The socks, now in two varieties (long football socks and crew socks suitable for netball and basketball) will be on sale in mid-Feb until the closing date of March 25.
For just $15 per pair, be part of the 2020 Sockit2MND Campaign on June 20 & 21. You can express your interest in purchasing socks now and then from mid-Feb (exact date TBA) order pairs for your club’s teams.
The deadline for orders is March 25, 2020, so have the conversation at your club to determine how many pairs your club wants in 2020 to ensure you don’t miss out as they do sell fast once orders open.
October 8-11, 2020 (TBC)
The Daniher’s Drive is FightMND’s famous annual road-trip throughout regional Australia that raises awareness and funds for research into Motor Neurone Disease.
Each year, about 350 people take part in the event which is a 4-day event with regional town community visits, great fun night events and the opportunity to meet new people, many of whom have been affected by MND.
Daniher’s Drive puts the fun into fundraising and is an event not to be missed.
