Running for a reason

More than 150 medical students took time out from last week’s Australian Medical Student Association National Convention to participate on the Gold Coast Airport Marathon festival to raise more than $21,000 for Indigenous health services.

The runners were among 1000 medical students from across Australia who descended on the Gold Coast on 7 July for the week-long AMSA Convention, and added the annual Run for a Reason event – organised by a group of enthusiastic medical students from across Australia every year – to their itinerary.

Students of all athletic abilities took part in the Run for a Reason event, participating as individuals and as part of a team, and covered distances ranging from 5.7 kilometres through to the full 42.2 kilometre marathon.

The team of medical students who organise Run for a Reason use the event to help make a difference by improving access to health care in rural Australia.

All the funds raised from this year’s event were donated to the Tharawal Local Aboriginal Land Council, which is working on a community heath project supporting Indigenous Australians.

More information about Run for a Reason can be found at: www.runforareason.org.au
