Sockit2MND Round


Published on Friday, June 15, 2018

The Northern Football Netball League is proud to partner with FightMND for the Sockit2MND Round on June 15-17.

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.

Since launching in 2014, FightMND has committed more than $23 million into research designed to take potential treatments from the science lab to the MND patient and to ultimately find a cure.

In addition, the organisation has invested $2.5 million into purchasing vital equipment to assist with the care of MND patients across Australia.

The NFNL is one of many AFL Victoria-affiliated league’s proud to partner with FightMND for the Sockit2MND Round.

Given the AFL’s strong support of FightMND and AFL legend Neale Daniher, the NFNL and AFL Victoria wish to bring awareness and fundraising initiatives to the clubs in our local sporting communities through the partnership with FightMND for the Sockit2MND Round.

Clubs are encouraged to wear Sockit2MND socks or hold a fundraiser around your club such as a raffle and join together to help raise funds to Fight MND.
