Past QBI fundraisers 

Bridge to Brisbane

All funds raised help researchers at the Queensland Brain Institute to tackle some of the greatest need areas in health, such as ageing dementia, stroke, autism, depression and anxiety, motor neurone disease, schizophrenia and spinal cord injury. We welcome people to join the team and help us reach our target!


Ross Maclean Fellowship Race Day

This fantastic event is sponsored by the Index Group to help raise awareness and funds for MND research at the Queensland Brain Institute.  All funds raised support the Ross Maclean Fellowship, which was established in 2004 by the late Ross Maclean and his family to raise funds to fight this devastating disease.


QBI Alastair Rushworth PhD Fundraising Trek

Funds raised through the QBI Alastair Rushworth PhD Fundraising Trek will support a PhD student conducting critical dementia research at the Queensland Brain Institute. In 2017, Janice Rushworth established the Alastair Rushworth PhD Scholarship Fund in 2017 in memory of her husband, Alastair Rushworth, who sadly passed away from early-onset Alzheimer's Disease in 2016.
