We ran, we walked, we finished 127th and we couldn’t be prouder!
It’s June, which means the May50K is finally over, and I’m proud to say Team Quip hit its fundraising target of $2,000 for Multiple Sclerosis research—in fact, we raised $2,009 all up.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who showed their support and cheered us on as we clocked up the k’s throughout the month of May.

Like many businesses, our team has been working from home since COVID-19 began, and the May50K was a wonderful way to feel connected for a cause.
It also got us off the couch and kept us fit during a time where being homebound has become the norm. And, most importantly, the funds raised will help Multiple Sclerosis research.
Multiple Sclerosis is a degenerative disease that affects over 25,600 Australians and currently has no cure. It affects more young people than any other acquired chronic neurological disease.
Our Founder, Keeva Stratton, has a very personal reason for supporting MS Research. She explains, ‘My mother was diagnosed with MS when she was only 40 years of age. She’s been an inspiration, but living with this chronic disease has been anything but easy.’
‘It why it meant so much to see our team at Quip Brands get behind this special cause. Here’s hoping a cure will be found soon.’
Thank you again to everyone who supported Team Quip and helped a great cause with some much-needed donations.
