FightMND is calling all sports fans, keen adventurers, driving enthusiasts and passionate fundraisers to join Neale Daniher, his brothers & sisters and the FightMND community as we embark on the 2017 DANIHER’S DRIVE. The 2017 teams are ready to go! You can still get involved - find out about our raffle prizes and local events below!
DANIHER’S DRIVE – a fun four-day road-trip extravaganza set to raise much needed awareness and funds to find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Teams on the DANIHER’S DRIVE 2017 will head off in their cars through the ‘Heart of Victoria – the Goulburn River Valley region’ which is famous for its scenic beauty, characterised by rolling hills, lush forests, majestic rivers and lakes. The Drive will kick-off from The Hyatt Place in Essendon Fields, who has been very kind to host the launch on Thursday the 12th of October. Lunch on Day 1 will be in the cathedral city of Wangaratta as we weave our way to the northern tip of Victoria into southern Riverina towards Wagga Wagga and the iconic Murrumbidgee River.
The ‘Riverina’ is the homeland of the Daniher family. The combination of flat plains, warm to hot climate and ample supply of water has made this region one of the most productive and agriculturally diverse areas in Australia.
The following three days will continue to showcase the very best regional Victoria has to offer – from the banks of the mighty Murray River via Corowa to Echuca – through to the Wimmera region to St Arnaud and down south to the historic goldfield region of Ballarat. Wherever we travel, the natural beauty will be the backdrop to a drive where you will thrive on the community spirit and make brilliant memories that inspire you for a lifetime.
