Grab a friend and join us in the Run for Research!

24 October 2013

Here’s your chance to take part in the much loved AMI Round the Bays and help raise important funds to support research into diseases affecting our friends, families and community.

With summer fast approaching, so too is another exciting event – the 2014 AMI Round the Bays on Sunday 23 February! Once again we’re the Official Charity Partner of this iconic event and will be holding our annual Run for Research fundraiser.

Thanks to an awesome group of individuals and teams earlier this year, the 2013 Run for Research raised over $40,000, an incredible achievement. This time around we hope to reach $50,000 to support our scientists and we want you to join us to make this possible.

You don’t have to be the super fit, athletic kind to take part – the main event is an enjoyable and achievable 6.5km fun run/walk around the beautiful bays of Wellington, with a 10km or half marathon option for those who want an extra challenge. Whether you approach it as a personal challenge or just a chance to get out and about and enjoy the community spirit while supporting a great cause, grab some friends, family, or colleagues and join us in what will be a fun and rewarding event!
