Summary of activities

FightMND continues to operate as Australia's largest independent fundraiser for large-scale collaborative research projects into Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and funder of assistive care equipment. We stage two major fundraising events annually while supporting many hundreds or smaller community-based fundraisers each year which all raise critical and much needed funds for MND. Now in our fifth year, our purpose and charter remains the same as it has from day one - to fund world-best practice research into an effective treatment and cure and in so doing, achieve the goal of creating a world free from MND. We experienced our most successful major campaign fundraising on record through our two iconic signature events with 'Big Freeze at the 'G' ($6.5m) and Daniher's Drive ($2.5m) yielding their highest totals of funds raised since their inception in 2015. We currently have four (4) clinical trials underway, seven (7) drug development research projects and a world-first drug screening platform for MND also underway. In total, $23.4m has been invested in cure and care initiatives since we began, $2.5m of which has been committed to care initiatives to support and assist those Australians living with MND. FightMND remains as the largest single funder of assistive care equipment in Australia. In early 2019, we will also announce a $7.6m investment into MND research with several clinical trials and drug development projects and a biomarker facility all included among the grant announcements.
