“We are delighted to announce the establishment of the Fat Rabbit MND Research Grant . It is our dream to find a cure for MND/ALS. Every year this grant will fund research that aims to facilitate development of a treatment.
The recipient of the first Fat Rabbit Research Grant is Associate Professor Trent Woodruff. Trent is a biomedical research fellow based at the University of Queensland. He is also dad to three wonderful children who love Fat Rabbit.
The 2017 Fat Rabbit Research Grant is worth $100,000. We have sold thousands of books but not all of this was from book sales. We also had generous support from MND Research Institute Australia, MND and Me, Steadfast Insurance, National Transport Insurance, The Southport School and many great sponsors who got behind the little white rabbit. Thanks to all.”
