A cold and foggy morning did not stop the Deni Big Freeze from taking place at McLean’s Beach.
Just over a dozen people many of them in summer gear lined up to simultaneously run into the Edward River in support of efforts to cure MND (Motor Neuron Disease).
Many more locals watched the event take place despite the cold and foggy conditions, ironically the water was warmer than what it was out of the water.
For those who missed out on seeing the moment live, fear not as the video of the moment is available on the Facebook event page.
Team Uncle Bob’s online fundraising total for Daniher’s Drive – Tour for a Cure has reached $7,284 whilst more money has been raised offline once again showing that Deniliquin is a caring town when it comes to fundraising for good causes.
The drive isn’t until October 11 so there is plenty of time for locals to still contribute and help researchers continue to attempt to end MND as a quality of life draining and life taking disease.
