This August, the members of Sydney University Surgical Society (SUSS) will run the City2Surf and raise funds to support Interplast.
Interplast is an Australian and New Zealand charity that provides free, life-changing surgical treatment for people in the Asia-Pacific region who would otherwise be unable to access such services. The teams train local surgeons, doctors and allied health professionals so that the communities they visit may continue to benefit long after they’ve left. Their patients are mostly children suffering from congenital conditions such as cleft lip/palate or acquired conditions such as burn scar contractures.
Check out their website www.interplast.org.au
Last year was a huge success, the team ran in scrubs and raised a whopping $9120! At one stage we were even ranked as the second-highest fundraising team! This year we want to do even better – so please get involved by running and raising funds with us in the SUSS team.
This is a great way to get off your study chair and get fit, all while supporting a fantastic cause, raising awareness and making friends. The run itself is awesome, you will have a lot of fun and see some spectacular views of our beautiful city.
Interplast has again partnered with SUSS and they promise to gift Interplast-branded scrubs to those who raise over a certain amount to run the race in. Details to come.
Please RSVP on the Facebook event.
