Geelong’s Big Freeze has raised more than $50,000 for MND research.

Hosted by Drysdale Football Netball Club, the Big Freeze saw local celebrities dress up and slide down into a pool of icey water.

Taxiride front man Jason Singh was dressed as Warwick Capper and even had the ‘Whiz’ on Facetime watching the event.

Dr Darren Walder stole the show in his green mankini and host Roxie Bennett from Bay 93.9 couldn’t escape the ice pool, sliding down after her duties had finished.

Sam Moorcroft raised more than $15,000 alone in the final tally of $52,000.

“There were so many great moments that I cannot start to explain,” Drysdale Football Club’s Graeme Reid said.

“It was incredible. The one common theme was enthusiasm, fun and a great sense of team achievement.”
