The Streaking Meerkats

February 2014

The Streaking Meerkats are a team raising money for the Sheffield Institute for Translational Research (SITraN) and Motor Neurone Disease Association by completing the Sheffield Half Marathon in April 2014. Both charities are leading lights in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease (MND), a cause which is close to the hearts of many team members.



Quote from Emily Goodall (SMND RAG member and researcher at SITraN) – I only started running a few months ago so the half marathon is a real challenge! All the training will be worth it on the day to see over 30 runners line up in MND t-shirts, great awareness and a quirky team name will hopefully attach attention and donations for MND research.
