Raising funds for medical research is now more important than ever.

Thank you! By going Red for Research this June, you are helping SSMRF raise vital funds for research projects in St George and Sutherland hospitals.

Here are some simple ways you, your workplace, family, gym, friends, school or club can go #RedforResearch:

  • Hosting virtual meetings? Show your support by hosting a #RedforResearch meeting and ask everyone to wear red and make a donation to SSMRF
  • Set yourself a Go Red Challenge for June - this could be running, rowing, riding, walking, push ups...its up to you!
  • Pledge to wear red every day in June - this could be red lipstick, red tie, red socks or red scarf every day in June.
  • Go red for a day! Ask everyone to wear red on a day in June and make a donation.
  • Ask your workplace to dollar match or get involved in your Red for Research fundraising activity.
  • Ask your local gym or exercise class to host a #RedforResearch day, everyone can wear red and donate to SSMRF.
  • At School? Have a Red for Research day. Everyone can wear red and donate a gold coin.
  • Host a morning tea, lunch or dinner for your family, friends or work colleagues. How many red foods can you think of?

St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation

The St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation raises money to support life-saving and life-improving research in our local hospitals.

Key areas of research include, among others, trauma & critical care, heart disease, lung disease, infection and cancer.

The Foundation is an independent charity that receives little Federal or State funding. We rely on the generosity of the public, as well as the funds raised from a small number of events. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
