RECORD-breaking fundraising efforts by Aussie pork producers and Coles supermarkets may mean a cure for motor neurone disease is one step closer. During May and June, the FightMND Foundation received 10 cents from the sale of each pack of Coles Brand fresh Australian pork, as well as an additional donation from pork producers who supply the retailer.
FightMND announced a record-breaking $11.9 million was raised during the campaign, including $5.2 million raised by Coles through the sales of pork and Big Freeze beanies.
The amount raised was more than double the 2019 figure and will be used to help find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for MND.
