If every dollar raised goes towards finding a cure, who pays for the costs of putting the Big Freeze event on?

Excellent question. We are very fortunate to have the support of two major sponsors for the Big Freeze project, and that is no different in 2018.  Crownbet, through their AFL community partnership, and the Melbourne Football club’s major sponsor Zurich have kindly supported the event with covering costs associated with staging the Big Freeze. In addition, we have several other supporters of this campaign who have donated products and time to ensure the event is a succesful one each year.
