Looking ahead to 2021
Express your interest for 2021
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.
Despite being cancelled in 2020 due to the challenges presented by COVID-19 we will be back again in 2021.
Interest in the Drive continues to grow each year so now is the time to express your interest in being a part of the event in 2021.
You will join about 350 people on a 4-day regional road trip with scheduled community visits, great fun night events and the opportunity to meet new people, many of whom have been affected by MND.
The Drive is a fantastic opportunity to get your friends and family together, form a fundraising car and contribute to the fight against MND, all whilst having fun at the same time.
Once we commence planning, we will be in touch to provide further information on the route, fundraising requirements and registration details.
Daniher’s Drive is an event not to be missed and we would love to have you on board.
2020 team fundraising tallies
Whilst the campaign this year has been cancelled due to the challenges presented by COVID-19, we know that the fight must go on.
The beast that is MND is still out there and each day two Australians are diagnosed and another two lose their battle.
We are thankful to have our amazing Drive teams continuing to fundraise for us. You
can support their campaigns or launch your own. Your support will ensure we can continue to fund world-leading researchers in our pursuit of discovering effective treatments and ultimately a cure for MND.

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.
