Running to beat multiple sclerosis

Team Monash BDI at Albert Park.

It was a sunny winter morning as 24 runners from Team Monash BDI participated in the annual 5km Fun Run for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) at Albert Park on Sunday 3 June. Generous staff and students from the Monash Biomedicine Discover Institute (BDI) and the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute supported Team BDI’s fundraising efforts by contributing $465.80 to the team’s bake sale. Raising $1282.80 in total, Team Monash BDI was celebrated on the MS Honour Wall.

MS is a chronic and debilitating disease which attacks the central nervous system, and we are humbled to have made a small difference in the lives of those afflicted in Australia. Funds raised by participants of the Fun Run for MS go directly to providing services and support for the Australians who are living with multiple sclerosis.

Team Monash BDI looks forward to getting involved in more charity runs in the future. If you would like to get active for a great cause, you are welcome to join in training with the Biochemistry (NOTDRS) running group.
