The Big Bush Freeze is back.
The popular fundraiser will return to Kindra Park on Sunday week when Coolamon host Wagga Tigers.
A number of Hoppers and Tigers legends will be joined by politicians and media for the The Big Bush Freeze 2.
Among those to hit the ice this year will be Neil Pleming, John Chamberlain, Mick Carey, Steven Priest, Bec Lyons, Scott Bradley, Nationals MP Steph Cooke and The Daily Advertiser’s Matt Malone.
The event is the major fundraiser for John and Wendy Keogh and Brendan and Joanne Gibbons’ The Grasshopers team that takes part in the annual Daniher Drive.
All money raised from The Big Bush Freeze 2 will go to Fight MND, Neale Daniher’s campaign to raise funds and a cure for Motor Neurone Disease.
The Grasshoppers last year took home the prestigious highest fundraising trophy from the Drive, beating 95 other teams.
They hope this year to breakthrough the $100,000 mark for money raised by the team over the past three years.
“We are proud to fly the flag for the Riverina in our fundraising efforts,” the group said.
“This year will see over 100 teams take part in what is sure to be the biggest and best Daniher’s Drive so far. Together will all teams our fundraising is vital to the Drive’s success and vital to the contribution Fight MND can make towards the MND research effort.”
The slide will take place prior to the first grade game at about 1.30pm.
