Medical student Ross Robertson will be running his first ever marathon at the Melbourne Marathon Festival on 13 October! He is putting himself through the hard yards (a gruelling 42.195 km) to raise awareness and funds to support DEA's vital work. Please support his extraordinary endeavour with a tax deductible donation.
Ross says, "As a medical student, I meet patients everyday who would have benefitted from measures to prevent their current ailment, who are now, however, left with only band aid solutions.
"I care about climate change for the same reason. We live in a precarious time, when the opportunities to prevent the deleterious effects of climate change are rapidly diminishing. We are at great risk of being left with band aid solutions at best, or no solutions at all at worst- at an unmeasurable cost to the preservation of nature and health of future generations.
"Doing something now simply makes sense.
"DEA is a volunteer-run organisation of medical professionals and students which operates on the premise that human health and wellbeing depend upon clean air, fresh water, healthy food, shelter and a safe climate. DEA's evidence-based approach offers a unique, often unconsidered, perspective on climate change issues.
"Any contributions, big or small, are greatly appreciated."
