The AFL Coaches Association support former AFL Coaches boss, the inspirational Neale Daniher in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease. #FightMND.

Daniher was an inaugural member of the AFL Coaches Association in 2002 and Vice-President of the very first AFL Coaches Association Executive Committee in 2002.

Daniher’s focus has turned to fighting the ‘beast’, raising awareness and funds to find a cure for MND through the establishment of FightMND and Big Freeze at the ‘G. His incredible work has led to millions of dollars being raised towards research into finding a cure. Daniher was recognised in 2016 with a Member of the Order of Australia award on the Queen's birthday and in 2019 he was named Victorian of the Year.

The fight against MND, and the crusade to find a treatment and cure for it, continues in earnest.
