Run Melbourne 2017

Melbourne city showed off a stunning display of beautiful winter weather and 51 participants were laced up and passionate to represent Hudson Institute for the 2017 Run Melbourne fundraising event on Sunday, 30 July.

More than just fun, the Institute proudly raised a total of $21,516.96 with much appreciation to our participants, as well as over 280 donations from generous supporters.

The funds raised will go towards purchasing a virtual piece of equipment; the VS120, a virtual scanner microscope valued at over $120,000.  The VS120 will enable researchers at the Institute to analyse a large cut piece of tissue so that structural and biochemical changes are detected in a shorter period of time.

2017 Run Melbourne was a motivational and healthy way for all Institute participants to challenge themselves. It was also a team building exercise and a way to give back to the Institute, to raise much needed funds for research, a wonderful cause close to everyone’s hearts.


All donations of $2 are tax deductible in Australia.
