We are very proud to have been a part of FIGHTMND Daniher's Drive team for another year (have been managing Drive Media for Neale Daniher since 2017) and despite it being a bumpy beginning due to the floods, we continued helping raise profile and awareness of the battle to 'beat the beast' - as well as an amazing $3M which is an awesome amount to assist researchers and those living with MND.
Many thanks to the 300+ everyday Drive participants who always make themselves available for media and photos, to the former Melbourne Football Club players led by David NeitzRod GrinterClint BizzellBrad Green who never say no, and to the wider Daniher family of brothers, wife Jan and children with Bec Daniher at the forefront.
But it wouldn't happen without the organisation of the FightMND team Fiona McIntosh Anthea HargreavesSamantha MoffattKirsty Kennedy and all other staff, board and Chair Michael Schneider, and our wonderful Media Car Pilot (and super research scientist) Bec Sheean who put up with the legendary Fiona Hamilton and I for the duration of the trip for a simple bribe of some home made rocky road!
And the tireless Drive Committee who work 52 weeks a year to make these trips possible.
Thanks to all the media who carried our #DanihersDrive#FightMND message on TV, Radio, Print and online and had some fun along the way, to the Bergs Productions lads who delivered great vision for media to access.
Enjoy a little glimpse of our wide coverage, and let's hope that eventually we don't have to do this anymore #BeatTheBeast
