Running Success!

The Step into Life de Castella Run for mental health research was held on Sunday 26th August… and once again it was a phenomenal day!

The sun was shining, the DJ was cranking, and the runners were unstoppable! There were activities for all the family, including yoga sessions, kids petting zoo, jumping castle, throw the Leader paper in the letterbox.... and so much more!  This year we introduced a staggered start time to accommodate the increased number of participants. A record 1756 runners and walkers registered for the event and supported the vital cause of raising funds & awareness for mental health research. 
This year we raised a tremendous $45,000! This money will directly benefit those with a mental illness. MAPrc is committed to conducting vital clinical research into severe mental illnesses – in particular depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and autism. This research translates into new diagnostic techniques, new and effective treatments, plus enhanced services for people with mental illnesses.
The day was unbelievable and it would not have been possible without the help of all of our sponsors, partners, friends and supporters – to whom we are extremely grateful!  A special thanks to our major sponsors - Step into Life, Mizuno, Runners World & Leader Newspapers...  your continued support is much appreciated!
We look forward to seeing you all there next year!
Next event: Sunday 31st August 2013
