MS Research Flagship - May 50K profile

Members of the MS Research Flagship Program at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research in Hobart have teamed up to take part in the 2020 May 50K. 

We will be walking or running 50km throughout May to raise vital funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis! Over 25,600 Australians are living with MS, and we need your help to leave MS where it belongs, behind us. As we know at Menzies, research is the key to changing the future of MS, and this is why we’ve accepted the May 50K challenge. Please consider donating to our fundraiser today and support our team. Thank you for your support!  

Menzies has proudly been at the forefront of research advancements in MS for twenty years. The MS Research Flagship Program is a hub of interdisciplinary MS research, knowledge, knowledge translation, and support within Menzies, which builds momentum across the wider MS community, nationally and internationally, towards improving outcomes for people living with MS and ultimately ending MS. For more information, visit: https://www.menzies.utas.edu.au/research/diseases-and-health-issues/diseases/multiple-sclerosis.
