About MotorOn

MotorOn was established in 2015 by a group of friends rallying together to show their support for a courageous young friend, and mother of two small children, who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in 2012.

MND is a progressive, terminal neurological disease with no known treatment or cure. Every day two people in Australia die from MND, while another two are told they have this devastating disease.

To date, MotorOn has raised over $1,000,000 for vital MND research. 100% of all money raised goes to the Macquarie University MND Research Centre, Australia's largest MND research facility. It currently employs 90 researchers and 12 clinicians who are all dedicated and passionate about finding a cure, but they need our help.

MotorOn raises money for MND research, demonstrating our love, support and admiration for friends and family fighting this awful disease. Never underestimate the power of friendship.

MotorOn Charity Ball

The 2019 MotorOn Charity Ball in Bowral was a huge success and raised over $200,000! The committee would like to thank the Southern Highlands community for their generous support.

The next Charity Ball will be held in 2021. We would love you to join us! Check out our Facebook page or follow us on Instagram so you don't miss out.

Funds Raised


Since the inaugural PartyOn event in 2017 PartyOn has raised nearly $80 000 in support of MND research at Macquarie University. With over 40 parties, picnics and BBQs, a huge thank you to our hosts and guests who have donated so generously. Check out our Facebook page for photos from the event.

We invite you to get involved in 2020 PartyOn! By simply hosting a dinner party, BBQ, picnic or small gathering and collecting donations from your guests, PartyOn provides a unique, fun and social occasion to raise awareness and much needed funds for MND research.
