A note from our CEO: Rohan Greenland
On November 25, the winners of the 2021 PRIME Awards will be announced in Sydney. These awards recognise and celebrate excellence in Australian healthcare communications and the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry. I’m pleased to say, MS Australia is a finalist in the ‘NGO of the Year’ category, along with fellow charities Ovarian Cancer Australia and the Macular Disease Foundation Australia. We want to thank Cube Public Relations for nominating MS Australia for this award and for their incredible ongoing pro bono support for our national fundraising campaign – The May 50K.
No matter the outcome, it’s deeply encouraging to have been nominated for this award, let alone shortlisted. Earlier this year, we were also honoured to receive a Fundraising Institute of Australia 2021 Excellence in Fundraising award for The May 50K. These nominations and awards have been made possible by you, the MS community. Your support, year after year, is what drives our research and advocacy programs. It’s what makes our education and awareness activities possible. Accolades, of course, are great. But at the end of the day, our progress is measured not in trophies but better outcomes for people living with MS.
The ultimate award won’t go to us but to the researchers we fund to drive us to our ultimate goal, a world free from MS, and to the supporters who provide the funding to make this happen.
