If you thought we couldn’t top 2017’s Daniher’s Drive, check out our early plans for the 2018 four-day on-road extravaganza – ‘Daniher’s Drive …a Tour for a Cure’. Sports fans, adventurers, driving enthusiasts and passionate fundraisers in 100 cars last year ventured across the Victorian border into NSW. It raised $2.35 million. We’re hoping to increase that in 2018 to $3 million, but we’ll need your help to do it.
The Tour for a Cure – Daniher’s Drive 2018
In 2018, we’ll be heading west into South Australia. The rally, joining Neale Daniher, his brothers and sisters and the FightMND community, will
- Weave through the Wimmera region in NW Victoria
- Breach the South Australian border into the Coonawarra wine region
- Pass through Mt Gambier
- Head through Victoria’s Western District
- Through Geelong and back to Melbourne
The exact route is still under construction. This means communities in our likely path can contact us to see if we can bring this major event right through the hearts of their towns. They’d have the chance to be involved in one of FightMND’s major fundraising efforts – and, as an added bonus, have 150 carloads of fun and generous Australians delivered to their doorsteps.
The Drive is getting bigger and better. It’s all about having fun, spreading the FightMND message in country regions whilst raising much needed funds for the cause. More people wanted to participate in 2017 than we could take on, so we’ve increased the number of cars from 100 to 150 in 2018. Registration of existing Daniher’s Drive devotees is already underway. But in February we’ll open up registration of new cars. If you have a passion for great times and an urge to raise money for a great cause, register your interest below!

The 100+ cars of FightMND enthusiasts registered for the 2018 Daniher’s Drive have already started their hard work in the quest for a cure and treatment for the deadly Motor Neurone Disease.
They will work throughout the year to raise awareness about the fight – across Victoria, SA, NSW and WA – and to raise money to go towards MND research. The teams will run great events for the cause, such as trivia nights, golf days and local competitions.
The emphasis in Daniher’s Drive is also to have fun with great people. By getting involved in teams’ events and contributing to their efforts expect to catch their enthusiasm. Their fundraising is vital to the Drive’s success – and vital to the contribution FightMND can make towards the MND research effort.
