Old Xavierians and MAPrc celebrate 8 year partnership on the de Castella Run

Dr Christopher Worsnop, Old Xavierians Athletic Club (OXAC) President, has 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.

The de Castella Run, held annually on the last Sunday in August for the last 37 years, has been owned by the 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". The funds will go towards furthering their research and improving clinical practice.
