Don your cape and channel your inner superhero for Muscular Dystrophy Australia’s annual Run for Strength Fun Run. Join Australian television presenter Kristy Mayr and a host of enthusiastic runners and walkers at the 2018 Run for Strength Fun Run, raising funds and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy Australia.

Run for Strength is set to be the biggest yet, with plenty of Melburnian’s and interstate participants gearing up to run and walk in support of those who can’t. The inaugural Run for Strength event was the brainchild of Ozi Akyildiz, a dad with an affected son, and his friend Sam Quattrone and it was first held in February 2009.

To date Run for Strength has raised in excess of $190,000. The superhero themed fun run is open to all ages and abilities, with many members of the MD community taking part. You can choose from either a 10km run or a 5km run or walk and the day will include entertainment for the entire family, including a sausage sizzle, face-painting, market stalls, giveaways, prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd and more! To stick with the superhero theme, you can come dressed in your favourite costume or purchase a MDA Superhero Cape.

All proceeds from the day go towards programs, services and research for the Muscular Dystrophy community.
