Run to support the Perkins

Right now, in labs right here in Perth, hundreds of scientists are working toward the next medical breakthrough.

When you make a tax-deductible donation to the Perkins it allows us to plan for our big goals, like making cancer non-lethal, discovering disease genes that give families answers they so desperately need and finding treatments for heart disease. Your donation supports brilliant minds at work with the best interests of your family and loved ones at heart. You provide researchers with stability and security so that they can focus solely on lifesaving research.

With your support, the results of these hardworking researchers could one day help millions of people stand up to any number of devastating diseases, now and in the future. The breakthroughs Perkins researchers are making in the labs will lead to potential cures. Without research, there are no new treatments, no advances in medicine, no chance of finding that one thing that will stop a disease in its tracks.

A record number of runners are registered for the half marathon this year. I wonder if any race records will be broken in 2019?
