“I participated in the 27 Challenge for my mum who has been diagnosed with MND. It was a truly liberating experience and raising money for something so close to my heart was worth all the burpees and F45 classes”. 

“I raised over $2,000 and finished feeling fitter and proud of my contribution to MND”.


“I wanted to do something that would push my mental and physical limits, as the pain and discomfort I’d feel over the 27 days is nothing compared to the pain someone diagnosed with MND goes through”

“Stev had a very close connection to MND, as he lost his father to the disease in April 2023. Stev decided to take up the 2023 27 Challenge to raise awareness and funds to hopefully one day find a cure. He extended the challenge by running 270 km in 27 days. Stev successfully ran 10km a day, everyday and raised over $10,500 towards FightMND”.

“Hey, I’m Archie, I’m 14 and I’ve organised 5 FightMND fundraisers over the last 4 years raising over $20,000. For my most recent 27 challenge, I completed a 27 km run. I love running, and I love helping people so it’s a good combo for me. We all need to do more to help beat this beast of a disease, 27 months being the average life expectancy from being diagnosed is not ok, and it has to change. I just want other kids to know, don’t let your age stop you from doing something to help others, if you’re passionate about something, go all in”.
