Jodie Lewis and Rebecca Ross have a deeply personal understanding of the pain caused by Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Ms Lewis lost her mum, her grandmother and her uncle to the disease, while Ms Ross lost her sister.

The Warrnambool pair wanted to do something to tackle the condition, for which there is no known cure or effective treatment.

Both women became involved in the FightMND cause, which funds research to treat and ultimately find a cure for the disease.

Ms Lewis and Ms Ross have organised a family-friendly trivia night on Friday September 29 at the Russells Creek Football Netball club rooms.

Funds from the night will kick-start their involvement in the 2017 FightMND Daniher’s Drive, a fundraising road-trip led by AFL legend Neale Daniher, who lives with MND.

The event begins at 6.30pm and includes activities for kids. Tickets are $5 for children, $10 for adults and can be purchased at the Miss Kitt beauty salon in Warrnambool.
