The Coles community has reached record funds for FightMND, raising more than $6.7 million in just six weeks.
Coles customers, team members of the supermarket and Coles Express and its Aussie pork farmers were all part of raising such significant funds.
It now brings the total amount raised for FightMND’s Big Freeze7 campaign to a record $14.6 million, enabling more funds to be directed to finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease.
“Our teams across Australia are extremely passionate about helping to find more effective treatments for this debilitating disease,” Coles Group CEO, Steve Cain says.
“Breaking another fundraising record for FightMND has been achieved by working better together with our customers, Aussie pork farmers, team members and of course the wonderful team and supporters at FightMND.
“It was great to see our beanies in Coles Express stores this year, providing not just a new retail avenue for our beanies but also helping to increase awareness of MND right across Australia.
“And of course a big thank you to our FightMND Army around Australia for buying their Big Freeze beanies at Coles and Coles Express stores.”
An average of two Australians are diagnosed with MND every day, while another two succumb to the disease.
