Support the Run for Research

1 February 2012

We are pleased to share the exciting news that the Malaghan Institute is the new Official Charity Partner of the 2012 AMI Round the Bays event in Wellington on Sunday 26 February!

As the Official Charity Partner we will be promoted during the lead up to the event and on the day. Anyone who registers to take part can choose to ‘Run for Research’ and fundraise to support the Malaghan Institute.

Join the Run for Research!

You can raise money to support our research by choosing to ‘Run for Research’ when you register for AMI Round the Bays.

To register now or for more information please visit www.amiroundthebays.co.nz. You can easily set up a Run for Research fundraising page at the end of the registration process, or alternatively visit www.runforresearch.co.nz.

The event, which attracts over 11,000 people, has a 7km fun run or walk option as well as the ISC Lenco Half Marathon run or walk. Both distance options take advantage of the beautiful inner harbour bays before converging on Kilbirnie Park for the ‘finish line festival’.

As an added incentive to register early, you will be able to workout for free at Les Mills from the moment you register until event day. The sooner you register the sooner you can take advantage of this fantastic offer.

Sponsor someone taking part

If you are unable to take part in this event, you can still show your support by sponsoring someone you know who is ‘Running for Research’, or by sponsoring a Malaghan scientist or staff member who is taking part. Just visit www.runforresearch.co.nz and click on ‘sponsor a friend’ in the top navigation bar.

Help spread the word by forwarding this on to your friends, family and colleagues

Please spread the word and help make the Run for Research fundraiser a great success. With your help we can increase awareness of the research being conducted by the Malaghan Institute right here in New Zealand.
