Inspiration, determination and admiration are all words applied to FightMND campaigner Neale Daniher and his amazingly loyal band of ‘beast-beaters’, who join him each year to raise money for FightMND through the famous Daniher’s Drive. And this year you have the chance to join them for a one-night-only opportunity in Mornington.
While the Big Freeze MCG ice slide is for the big names, this community-based event features nearly 100 exotic and traditional cars and 350 participants. It’s putting the ‘fun’ into fundraising on a very serious subject, and is made up of a mix of those who have seen the devastation of motor neurone disease up close with family, and the massive extended Daniher clan and former AFL greats especially from Neale’s time at the Demons and the Bombers.
Daniher’s Drive continues to raise millions of dollars to fight MND and this year may see it close in on a total of $10 million since inception.
Now in its fifth year, the four-day Daniher’s Drive will set off from Werribee Zoo and travel through Ballarat, Wangaratta and Marysville before descending on the Mornington region over the weekend of October 12-13. And in a rare opportunity this year, you can join in the fun of the final night’s celebrations, when the party will really rock.
Grab a table, book your tickets, help the cause and join the crew for the Heroes and Villains-themed night at Mornington Racecourse on October 12. Help FightMND ‘beat the beast’! For more information and bookings, go to
