Day 317. Run to paradise

Speaking of running…this guy is running from Sydney to Surfers all in the name of neuroscience.

Mic is a programmer at Neuroscience Research Australia (aka NeuRA), a Sydney-based institute focused on brain and nervous system research. Funnily enough, my lovely sister completed her PhD in the place (working with Jane Butler) just a few years ago.

In Mic’s words:

As a many of my close friends know I’ve been planning a run from Sydney to Surfer’s Paradise.

A couple of weeks ago I was given the green light from NeuRA to complete my run as a fundraising event. The event will be raising funds and awareness for the incredible research into Alzheimer’s Disease undertaken at NeuRA.

On Sunday the 23rd of June I will start my journey from Sydney setting off from the entrance to NeuRA and finishing two weeks later in Surfer’s Paradise.

The final leg of my run will be the Gold Coast Airport Marathon bringing the total distance of my epic run to just over 900 km!

Mic is on the move! If you’re keen, you can donate to support NeuRA Alzheimer’s research, or track his progress here.
