Big Freeze 8
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 find a treatment and cure for MND.
This year we are excited that this iconic event will be coming back to the ‘G on Queen’s Birthday Monday. We’re bringing back the march, the celebrity slide and all the excitement that is part of the annual Big Freeze clash between Collingwood and Melbourne at the MCG. We can’t wait to have you join us!

Sockit2MND is a fun, community initiative that brings together local leagues, clubs, teams, players & communities in the fight against ‘The Beast’ that is Motor Neurone Disease.

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.
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
