MOE Football-Netball Club is preparing to host another bumper event in support of the Fight MND campaign.

The Lions have set aside their home game against Wonthaggi on Saturday, June 8 (Round 9 of the Gippsland League) to hold its Fight MND day.

Another huge crowd is expected, and with the Mid Gippsland Football-Netball League and North Gippsland FNL having a bye on the weekend of June 8, the Lions are inviting all neighbouring football-netball clubs to join in festivities at Ted Summerton Reserve.

As part of a wider community engagement this year, Yallourn Yallourn North Football-Netball Club and Newborough FNC members can enter Moe FNC home games free of charge when they show their Jets or Bulldogs membership card.

The usual festivities synonymous with the AFL Big Freeze event will take part, as the community rallies to help ‘freeze MND’.

A number of local celebrities have agreed to go under the water, and names will be released closer to the date.

Last year’s event attracted a finals-like crowd to Ted Summerton Reserve, which was highlighted by the great Neale Daniher, the face of the Fight MND campaign, attending in person.

His son, Ben is a current Moe player.

The Freeze events are slated to take place around 2pm, although patrons are advised to arrive early as parking is expected to fill very fast.

Those attending are encouraged to wear the blue Fight MND beanies, available from Coles supermarkets.
