The Big Freeze returns to Newcastle on SATURDAY 23rd JUNE 2018

The Big Freeze Newcastle is about dunking some local personalities in a whole lot of ice water to help #FreezeMND. This great initiative is driven by a local committee partnering with the Newcastle City Blues (AFL) and FightMND.

The aim is to raise funds to find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease, along with building awareness and having fun at the same time! The Big Freeze Newcastle will start with a family fun day at Newcastle’s Number 1 Sports Ground on Saturday 23rd June. There’ll be an AFL game, a parade of runners completing a relay race, and other fun activities (more info to follow). Of course, the main event will be the giant slide leading straight into a pool of ice water, where several local personalities, who have committed to raise $5,000 each, will be dunked for their commitment to freeze MND! 

Can you help us reach our goal of $150,000 through a donation to a slider or a general contribution? Our top fundraisers are on the leader board but please ‘Donate to Slider’ if there is another slider you wish to donate to.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @BigFreezeNewcastle, and if you’re interested in participating as a slider, a volunteer or a corporate sponsor, get in touch via email at 


FIGHTMND is the face of the Cure for MND foundation - a not-for-profit charity established in 2014. We aim to raise the profile of Motor Neurone Disease within Australia and abroad in the hopes that increased awareness may lead to not only better care for those affected by the disease, but also increased funding for vital research into finding a cure.
