De Castella Run - raising money for mental health research

On Sunday 25 August, 1600 runners and walkers helped raise almost $20,000 while enjoying sunny conditions on the beautiful Kew Boulevard to support mental health awareness and research in the 33rd annual de Castella Run. The event, named after Olympic marathoner Robert de Castella, supports innovative research being conducted at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc). Fundraising is open until September 30. You can donate at http://decastellarun.gofundraise.com.au/payments/donate/beneficiary/708. For more information visit www.decastellarun.com.au or www.maprc.org.au.
Aside from the run or walk, participants and supporters enjoyed a lively post-race Mind and Body Expo, which included information about the research at MAPrc, as well as massages, food, yoga, face-painting and a jumping castle for the kids. Funds raised will support the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Depression Clinic at MAPrc.
