Daniher’s Drive.

The 2018 Daniher’s Drive will stop in Stawell tomorrow as part of Fight MND’s goal to raise $1.5-million to help find a cure for motor neurone disease.
Now in its fourth year, the drive involves individuals, groups, sports fans, keen adventurers and driving enthusiasts participating in a four-day ‘tour for a cure’.
The tour starts in Melbourne and makes its way through the Wimmera and South Australian wine regions before ending in Geelong.
Stawell business owners campaigned to have Daniher’s Drive stop in the region, with many of them donating goods and services to help with the fundraising efforts.
The convoy, which includes nearly 20 ex-AFL footballers, is scheduled to arrive in Stawell for about an hour at about 3.30pm.
People can welcome the visitors and buy items from an afternoon tea set up in Main Street.
There will also be a barbecue outside Stawell Club in Main Street from 2pm.
Two raffles will run on the day to support the fundraiser, with ‘surprise bags’ for children available for $4.
There will also be donation tins and people will have an opportunity to speak with some drivers.
Northern Grampians Shire councillor Murray Emerson said it was great to see Fight MND co-founder Neale Daniher bringing his campaign to the region.
“It is an incredible cause,” he said. “I’m sure our community will come out in droves and get behind Neale and the Fight MND campaign.”
The #DanihersDrive18 convoy, with nearly 20 ex-AFL footballers, will attend a meet and greet at May Park from about 5.30pm.
The drive will include a dinner at Horsham Town Hall on Thursday night.
