CRC Big Freeze Fundraiser

Students thoroughly enjoyed watching staff have buckets of iced water tipped over them at lunch time today as part of our hugely successful Big Freeze fundraiser.

As of this afternoon, more than $2700 has been raised for Fight MND, an organisation that works tirelessly to raise funds for research that contributes to better treatments and the search for a cure for motor neurone disease.

A big thank you to our Foundation VCAL students who organised the event and were supported by our Social Justice Team, our brave staff who volunteered to take a drenching and everyone who has donated to the cause.

Remember it's not too late to contribute to the campaign! Click here Catholic Regional College Melton Big Freeze 8 fundraiser or scan the QR code.

What is FightMND?

FightMND’s purpose is to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure for Motor Neurone Disease. Neale Daniher, former Essendon player and Melbourne coach, was diagnosed in 2013. He is one of the three co-founders of FightMND and the patron of FightMND.

MND is a terminal neurological condition that ultimately leads to the loss of movement and the ability to speak, eat and breathe. Two Australians die of MND and two more are diagnosed every day. On average, people live for just 27 months after diagnosis. There is no effective treatment or cure.
