SUSS City2Surf for Interplast 2016

SUSS City2Surf for Interplast 2016

On Sunday, August 14, Sydney University Surgical Society (SUSS) will once again run the City2Surf and raise funds to support Interplast.

Each year SUSS medical students run City2Surf in scrubs to raise money for Interplast Australia and New Zealand. In the last few years SUSS has raised over $20,000. All medical students are encouraged to run with us in 2016.

Interplast provide free surgical treatment for patients with congenital or acquired medical conditions such as cleft lip and palate or burn scar contractures in the Asia Pacific region who would otherwise not be able to afford access to such services.

There will be extremely casual Saturday morning runs most weekends between now and the race – to meet the team and get in shape for the big day.

SUSS City2Surf for Interplast 2015

UPDATE: Congratulations to the SUSS team who made it to Bondi Beach yesterday and raised over $5000 for Interplast!

On the 9th of August, the members of Sydney University Surgical Society (SUSS) will once again 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. Its 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 here: www.interplast.org.au

Previous years have been huge successes. Since SUSS has been running the 14 km from Macquarie St to Bondi Beach in full surgical garb, we have raised over $15,000. Read the media coverage of the 2014 SUSS City2Surf campaign. We are committed to supporting Interplast in their valuable work and want to continue this year by raising our largest total ever. 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 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.
