Big Freeze Newcastle is on SATURDAY 23rd JUNE 2018 at 3pm

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

The aim is to raise funds to find a cure for MND, along with building awareness and having fun at the same time! Big Freeze Newcastle will take place at Newcastle’s Number 1 Sports Ground on Saturday 23rd June. There will be AFL games, a parade of runners completing a run, and other fun activities. Of course, the main event is the giant slide leading straight into a pool of ice water, where approximately 20 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 volunteer, buying a beanie or being a corporate sponsor please get in touch via email at or call Pippa on 0499 014 954.

With thanks to our amazing sponsors!







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.
