Six neuroscientists from the Butt and Kohl groups ran as the Funky Brains team at the Town and Gown 10K race on May 13th, 2018.

Liad Baruchin, Michael Kohl, Tai-Ying Lee, Alex Rowatt, Yayoi Teramoto and Cristiana Vagnoni joined the 4,400 other people running the race to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK. 

With some members at their first 10K ever, Funky Brains did a great job, finishing the run with a team average of sub-one hour.

This race was the biggest event in the Town and Gown series since it began, and raised £135,000 to date.

Many other members of the Department joined the Town and Gown 2018, as runners or volunteers, and we congratulate them all for their efforts!
