Why is Hughesy About to Freeze?
Our very own Hughesy’s been nominated as the next in line to ride the slide towards the pool of ice to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease.
The nomination came from AFL 360 host Gerard Whateley on Wednesday nights episode on Fox Sports.
The Big Freeze, on Monday June 13th will see 11 well known footy and television personalities dunked into a giant ice pool in front of a blockbuster crowd at the MCG ahead of the Melbourne vs Collingwood game.
Already over $330,000 has been raised which proceeds will go towards vital Motor Neurone Disease research into finding a cure. Last year over $2.5 million dollars was raised during the event.
Today Hughesy and Kate spoke with Former AFL legend Neale Daniher who is currently fighting is own battle with Motor Neurone Disease. Neale was Diagnosed with MND in 2013 and is the MND Foundation Vice-President and official Patron of the Foundation.
Daniher supported Hughesy saying “I’d to like to thank Hughesy for getting on board”
