Whether you have an interest in baking, running, sky diving, knitting, cutting your hair off or sitting in a bathtub of baked beans, there may be something you could do to help support LSHTM’s important work.
Helping generate excitement around a challenge, or bringing people together for a cause you feel passionate about helps raise vital funds for LSHTM projects.
In 2018, MSc Public Health alumnus Luis Guerra and Epidemiologist and LSHTM scientist Dr Paul Mee ran the London Marathon, raising £3,000 for scholarships and the Steve Lawn Memorial Fund. Meanwhile, the Electronic Health Records Group at LSHTM cycled from London to Paris, raising over £20,000 for the Adrian Root Memorial Prize supporting LSHTM MSc Epidemiology students each year.
This summer Jen, a friend of LSHTM, decided to run the marathon for her brother Dave, who has ME, because, for him, every day is like running a marathon. In honour of their childhood dream, Jen decided to make the most of the opportunity and raised £3,050 to support CureME, home of the UK’s first ME Biobank, leading ground-breaking research into ME/CFS, based at LSHTM.
Whether you’d like to run the London (or any other) Marathon, freefall out of a plane, ride your bike, put on an event, or host a cake sale, we would love to hear from you. By supporting LSHTM, you can raise the profile of our world-changing institution and contribute toward our goal of global health equity.
