The de Castella Run, held annually on the last Sunday in August for the last 37 years, has been owned by the Old Xavierians Athletic Club (OXAC) since 2008. OXAC has shared a great partnership with MAPrc  over the last 8 years to raise money to support research into debilitating mental illnesses that are the hardest to treat. During this time the run has become known as the "de Castella Run 2 Mend Minds".

On Friday 24 March 2017, Dr Christopher Worsnop, OXAC President, presented a generous cheque of $60,000 at MAPrc affirming the continuing relationship between MAPrc and OXAC and their shared goals in finding new treatments to serious mental illnesses - helping to Mend Minds.

This cheque was gratefully received by Professor Jayashri Kulkarni, Director of Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre. MAPrc researchers are international leaders in developing new treatments for serious mental illnesses, and the funds will go towards furthering their research and improving clinical practice.
