2019 Sockit2MND Round


Published on Saturday, June 15, 2019

The Northern Football Netball League is proud to be supporting FightMND this weekend as part of Sockit2MND Round.

FightMND is Australia’s leading independent Motor Neurone Disease association, fighting to find a cure through fundraising initiatives such as the Big Freeze, Daniher’s Drive and now the Sockit2MND Round.

Many NFNL clubs will be supporting the cause across games being played from June 14-16 by proudly wearing Big Freeze 5 socks.

The aim of Sockit2MND round is to:

• Raise awareness of MND within the local community
• Support those within the community who may be suffering from MND or have a personal connection to MND
• Raise vital funds to help us continue to fund Australia’s best and brightest researchers to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure for MND

The Big Freeze 5 socks are a great accessory to the Big Freeze beanie, which has become a feature throughout the football community – most notably at the annual Collingwood vs Melbourne match on the Monday of the Queen’s Birthday weekend.

The Big Freeze 5 socks, which come in both light and dark shades, create a sea of blue on the field or the court.

Two Australians are diagnosed with MND every day, and two more will lose the fight.

It’s time to pull your socks up and help us fight MND.
