Neale Daniher and a host of football stars will stop in Daylesford as part of an annual FightMND fundraising event.
The Daniher’s Drive rally begins in Melbourne on Thursday and hits the spa country later in the day.
Daniher, a former Essendon footballer and Melbourne coach, was diagnosed with motor neuron disease in 2013 and has grown into a campaigner for medical research.
Daniher’s Drive is a fun, community-based event that tours regional areas of Australia spreading the word and growing awareness about MND and the need to fund critical research in a quest to find a cure.
This year, a convoy of 100 cars will visit towns in both Victoria and South Australia.
High-profile football names such as David Neitz, Brad Green and Russell Robertson, as well as Daniher brothers Terry, Anthony and Chris, will be part of the four-day tour.
Daniher’s Drive will arrive in Daylesford at 12.15pm on Thursday, with lunch planned at the The Convent in Daly Street.
