The Cure for MND Foundation is calling all sports fans, keen adventurers, driving enthusiasts and passionate fundraisers to join Neale Daniher, his brothers & sisters and the Cure For MND Foundation community as we embark on the 2017 DANIHER’S DRIVE. This year marks the annual third year of the fun four-day road-trip extravaganza. The Drive is set to raise much needed funds and awareness 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. Lunch on Day 1 will be in the cathedral city of Wangaratta as we weave our way to the northern tip of Victo-ria 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.
While the essence of the DANIHER’S DRIVE is for you to see first-hand the natural beauty that is Victoria/NSW, at the heart of the drive is to come together with great people to raise valuable funds for the Cure For MND Foundation and play your role in accelerating the fight to cure MND.
Cure For MND Foundation
The Cure for MND foundation is a not-for-profit charity established in 2014. We aim to raise the profile of Motor Neurone Disease within Australia and abroad in the hopes that increased awareness may lead to not only better care for those affected by the disease, but also increased funding for vital research into finding a cure.
