Currently, more than 2,000 Australians are living with MND, and their average life expectancy is only 27 months.

With ongoing support, FightMND can make targeted investments in cutting-edge projects focused on fast-tracking new treatments and driving discoveries towards a cure.

Donate today and show us you’re all in with helping us to find a cure.

JOIN THE ALL IN FIGHT

At FightMND, we are driven by a singular and urgent vision - a world free of Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Through the collective efforts of our community and organisation, we will raise awareness and fund vital research to improve the quality of life and find a cure for those living with MND.

Our purpose is to champion hope and lead the fight against MND.

On Sunday, over 650 people ran the @melbmara and chose to raise funds for FightMND. Bryan was a participant and trained for four months. 

Bryan went from being able to take 100 steps in the hydro-pool and worked his way up to 2000 steps in preparation for Sunday’s 3km walk. Congratulations Bryan and thank you for raising vital funds for FightMND.
