Scope 49 - Melissa Moon wants you to join her

2 November 2012

World renowned Wellington runner and Malaghan Run for Research Ambassador, Melissa Moon, is a firm believer in supporting charities that help our communities in a positive way, and she wants you to join her in supporting the 2013 Run for Research.

“Every one of the 12,000 participants will know of someone who is affected by one of the conditions the Institute researches from cancer to arthritic conditions. For me personally I suffer from allergies, both food and pollen based, which can be very debilitating as an athlete and in general daily life,” says Melissa.

“The Run for Research combines a passion of mine - running and exercise - with an important cause in our society. With over 12,000 people expected to participate in this wonderful Wellington event it is a fantastic opportunity to create valuable awareness of what the Malaghan Institute is all about - improving the health of people in our community.”

“Education and research not only provides me with hope and answers, but does the same for our wider community.”

“Please join me in supporting the Run for Research - together we can make a real difference.”
