Scope 49 - Join us in the Run for Research!

02 November 2012, Run for Research

With summer fast approaching, so too is another exciting event – the 2013 AMI Round the Bays on Sunday 17 February! Once again we’re the Official Charity Partner of this iconic event.

Our Run for Research fundraiser provides a fantastic opportunity to take part in AMI Round the Bays and show your support of our scientists.

Earlier this year individuals and teams helped raise an incredible $35,000 in the Run for Research – and with your help we are confident this record can be broken!

You don’t have to be the super fit, athletic kind to take part – the main event is an enjoyable and achievable 7km fun run/walk around the beautiful bays of Wellington.

How can you help? Join the Run for Research fundraiser and represent us at the start line! Participate with your family, friends, school, colleagues or any group you wish. If you are unable to take part but you still want to show your support – let us know. You will be able to make a donation in support of someone taking part, and there will be volunteer opportunities during the lead up to the event.

Why is it important to us? We love Wellington and this is a great way to get involved with our local community. It’s also an active way to raise awareness of the Malaghan Institute, the important research we do and help raise funds to keep it going.
