5K Scrub Run

After the awful events at Princes Park recently, UMMSS has decided to dedicate its upcoming Scrub Run to raise funds for Safe Steps: a family violence resource centre. As such we have teamed up with MedFem to raise funds for this great organisation and show our dedication to speaking up for the safety of women everywhere.

Check out the good work that Safe Steps does here: https://www.safesteps.org.au/

So come down to Princes Park, wear your scrub tops, and run or walk 5km in solidarity against violence towards women. Tickets are $5 for UMMSS members and $7 for family and friends, and all funds will be passed on to Safe Steps. Friends and family are welcome to attend, but only UMMSS members will receive a scrub top for participating. 

Participation will also count towards the UMMSS Clinical School Cup, with points for:
- # of participants at each site
- The site with the greatest % of attendees
- 1st, 2nd and 3rd place getters
