The Ice Bucket Challenge in Australia is a challenge to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Ice Bucket Challenge for MND/ALSThe Ice Bucket Challenge in Australia raises much-needed awareness about motor neurone disease (MND or ALS). Ice Bucket Challenge donations to MND NSW help us to continue to provide our family support service (including the MND Info Line, MND advisor service, equipment, educational events and information) for our members, their family and friends.

Take the Ice Bucket Challenge and challenge your friends and family to do the same.

  1. Fill a bucket (or larger container) with water and ice
  2. Tip it over your head
  3. Challenge three other people to take the Ice Bucket Challenge within 48 hours
  4. If nominees don’t take the Ice Bucket Challenge within 48 hours they make a donation to MND NSW. Of course you can take the challenge AND make a donation and ask the people you nominate to do the same!

We are asking people living in NSW, ACT and the NT make their Ice Bucket Challenge donations to MND NSW.

The Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS/MND was a phenomenal social media campaign that swept the world in the last half of 2014. It was initiated by Pat Quinn, a former athlete and Pete Frates, a former Boston College captain. Both men are living with motor neurone disease (MND) in the US. When Peter Frates posted his challenge online, the Ice Bucket Challenge quickly went viral, spreading to Australia in early August 2014 and sparking the involvement of over 60,000 Australians.
