Default Aussies Raise $4.5mil for MND

We had the annual Big freeze at the G yesterday before an AFL match. The federal government matched the donations 1 for 1 & we raised $4.5mil in a day!

The Fight MND charity has now raised $20mil over 3 years & funded 8 new research projects in Australia. Can't wait to see what else they do!

Neale is doing every single Aussie and PALS proud

I don't think there is any other kind of ice bucket style challenge happening now, but CURE MND foundation have done it yet again, and securing dollar for dollar from the federal gov is so awesome.



For the record I wore my beanie out koala spotting this morning
