Oxford Town and Gown 2021
Let’s ‘paint the Town orange’ this June and join Muscular Dystrophy UK’s Oxford Town and Gown 10km challenge, sporting glorious views along the River Cherwell and finishing in the University Parks- dubbed the ‘Best 10km in South East England’ by the running awards in 2019. Following last year’s cancellation of the event, we are pleased to announce that MDUK will host the run on the 27th of June 2021. To support MDUK’s Oxford Town and Gown 10km challenge, the MDUK Oxford Neuromuscular Centre is hosting a number of fundraising events and aims to smash our phenomenal fundraising total from 2019. Together with our colleagues, we look forward to a fun filled calendar of events.
Gather those long-lost friends for our first quiz since lockdown and challenge yourself to win some fabulous prizes. The quiz will be held on the 23rd of June at 7.30pm at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology (OCGF, OX1 3PT), sporting beautiful views over the University Parks. Entry costs £10 each, and includes a drink and snacks, with a maximum of 6 people per team. Additional drinks (and a donation box) will be available on site. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your team.
Don those aprons and join the wonderful Mrs Bun to make some yummy tea-time goodies with the kids on the 25th of June at 4pm via Zoom. This event is aimed at small humans from 3-6yrs, but I am sure we will all learn a thing or 2 from Mrs B.
