Souths MND Fundraising Lunch

Souths MND Fundraising Lunch

For the past 15 years, Souths Rugby has proudly supported the Ross Maclean MND Research Fellowship at the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI), with the aim being to fund research to help find a find potential treatments for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).


Although Ross Maclean knew there was little chance he would benefit from new research into MND, that didn’t stop the Index Group founder, and supporter of Souths Rugby since 1976, from focusing his efforts during his final years, to establish a fund to fight this most debilitating disease, for which there is no cure.


Before he passed away in 2005, Ross was instrumental in establishing a Fellowship to study MND at the Queensland Brain Institute.
