What Is the Big Freeze?

Motor Neurone Disease Fundraiser at the MCG

Help us Freeze MND on June 13th at the MCG as we dunk several well known footy and television personalities into a giant ice pool before the blockbuster Queen’s Birthday Melbourne FC vs Collingwood FC game.

In support of the Cure for MND Foundation, several of Australia’s best and most well know football and media personalities will take on the challenge and freeze for MND. With your help each will pledge to raise $10,000 for vital MND research after being nominated, and once successful at hitting this target, they then get to pass on the challenge and nominate the next personality into the “cold seat”. This person in turn will raise funds and agree to “Freeze for MND” if their fundraising goal is met. The challenge will continue right up until the game, with each celebrity challenging the next….

You’ll want to get to the MCG early on Queen’s Birthday to see this year’s Big Freeze 2 take place, and see the biggest names in football get the ice treatment. This is no mere ice bucket challenge. Make sure you are there by 2.30pm on the 13th of June. You won’t want to miss The Big Freeze!

No one is safe and anyone could be challenged!

The Impact of MND

AFL Legend Neale Daniher

Patron of the Cure For MND Foundation

Former AFL legend Neale Daniher needs little introduction. Debuting for the Essendon Bombers in 1979, Neale is one of four brothers making up part of the Daniher football legacy.

His football career, although dogged by injury, was well respected with Neale winning wide spread praise and accolades for his actions both on and off the field. Neale went onto a career in AFL coaching, with assistant and senior coaching positions at Fremantle and Melbourne Football clubs respectively. It was at Melbourne Football Club where he would remain as well respected and loved coach for ten seasons from 1998-2007

These personal characteristics are what drive Neale, and it is these values that are now echoed in his approach with his current battle with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Diagnosed with MND in 2013, Neale’s continued determination to live life to the fullest, and face the challenges this disease brings with courage, humour, and a drive to help prevent the suffering of those that may be diagnosed with this disease in the future, is inspiring.

In early 2015 Neale joined the Cure For MND Foundation as Vice-President, and has also signed on as the official Patron of the Foundation.

Help fund MND research

To cure, to care, to make aware

The Cure for MND foundation is a 100% not-for-profit foundation aimed at raising the profile of Motor Neurone Disease within Australia and abroad.
