Team SA: SAHMRI has joined forces with South Australia’s three universities for the biggest Ice Bucket Challenge yet.

South Australia’s Health Minister, Jack Snelling, has agreed to wield one of the buckets at next week’s ‘Team SA’ ice bucket challenge in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association of South Australia (MNDSA).

Upping the ante on last year’s fundraising efforts, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) has joined forces with SA’s three unis to make the biggest splash yet.

Flinders University’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Robert Saint, will take an icy soaking alongside UniSA Vice-Chancellor, Professor David Lloyd, The University of Adelaide’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Mike Brooks and Dr Ian Johnson, and SAHMRI Executive Director Professor Steve Wesselingh.

The event will take place next Friday, 21 August, at 2.30pm on the Goodman Lawns at University of Adelaide on North Terrace, where Mr Snelling will kick things off by soaking Professor Wesselingh.

All money raised will go to MND SA to help the association continue providing much needed care and support to South Australians living with Motor Neurone Disease.
