Big Freeze Newcastle

Big Freeze Newcastle

On June 23, 2018 Save to calendar

Categories: General Events


The Big Freeze Newcastle is about dunking some local personalities in a whole lot of ice water to help #FreezeMND. The aim is to raise funds to find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease, along with building awareness and having fun at the same time!

The Big Freeze Newcastle will start with a family fun day at Newcastle's Number 1 Sports Ground. There'll be an AFL game, a parade of runners completing a relay race, and other fun activities. Of course, the main event will be the giant slide leading straight into a pool of ice water, where several local personalities will be dunked for their commitment to freeze MND!
