On Sunday July 29, Team MONASH and the External Relations, Development and Alumni office combined to participate in the Run Melbourne event for the first time!
Starting on St Kilda Rd (or at Flinders Street Station for the 21km), the route took runners through the iconic streets of Melbourne on a fun filled course with cheer squads, live music and on-course motivators, as well as an action packed event village at Federation Square.
We will be back again next year so stay tuned for more info when it comes to hand.
As part of this event, Monash students, staff and alumni came together to support asylum seeker and refugee students studying at Monash by contributing to the Asylum Seeker Scholarship fund.
Monash University proudly supported the fundraising for this program by offering a $45 reimbursement of the Run Melbourne sign up fee when participants raised over $150 for the cause.
We can proudly confirm that over $37,000 was raised at the 2018 event, enough to fund one Asylum Seeker Scholarship in 2019! What an amazing achievement!
Check out all of the photos from 2018 here.
