Windsor Half Marathon

28 September 2014

We had 15 runners competing and fundraising for us on the day, who raised a total of over £4,000 for The Musical Brain.


Why run for The Musical Brain?

Music has inspired, entertained, comforted and moved us for thousands of years. But it is only recently that science has begun to shed light on the incredible impact that music and other art forms can have on the mind, brain and body.  The Musical Brain is committed to bridging the gap between the arts and sciences by encouraging cross-disciplinary discussion between neuroscientists, artists, medical professionals and performers, and by sharing and debating the groundbreaking research with a public audience.  Our conferences and events demonstrate the life-enhancing effects of the arts on conditions such as depression, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of conflict, providing practical implications for medical professionals, therapists and arts practitioners.
 
We are a small charity and require funding to cover our core and event costs. Run for us and help to ensure that the vital discussion between science and the arts continues.
