Thanks to Victorian Government for $1M contribution
We thank Victorian Premier, Hon. Daniel Andrews and his Victorian Government who announced on day one that they will commit a further $1 million to the fight against MND.
Announced in the company of FightMND co-founder and patron, Neale Daniher. the generous contribution to fight ‘The Beast’ takes the overall Victorian Government’s financial support to an amazing $5 million.
These funds will be quickly turned to the hands of the best and brightest researchers as they continue their work to discover effective treatments and a cure for MND.
From all at FightMND, thanks to the Victorian State Government for their immense generosity.
Thank you to our valued partners
Daniher's Drive is extremely fortunate to have the support of so many amazing and committed companies and we extend our thanks to all of our partners from 2019.
