Now a cherished tradition, the annual Queen's Birthday Big Freeze continues to have a monumental impact in raising money and fighting Motor Neurone Disease.

2021's Big Freeze saw the Australian public and football community raise a record $14.6 million

Beloved Essendon and Melbourne great Neale Daniher has led the fight, closely accompanied by his daughter and FightMND Campaign Director Bec Daniher.

Each year the Big Freeze has seen high-profile names take the plunge into icy water for the cause, with the eighth edition no different.

This year's ten sliders include retired Australian tennis champion Ash Barty, former Australian cricket coach Justin Langer and Olympic gold medallist Jakara Anthony.

Neale's brother, Terry, a 313-game great of the AFL will also take the plunge, along with fellow legends of the league in Eddie Betts and David Neitz.

The big freeze is being held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground ahead of the game between Collingwood and Melbourne, with it scheduled to start at 2:00pm (AEST). You can watch it on Channel 7 or live stream it on 7 Plus.
