The New Zealand Brain Research Institute is undertaking ground-breaking research in Canterbury, relying solely on research grants, fundraising and donations. We hold various events throughout the year to educate, inform and raise money for our important work.

Pegasus Bay Vine Run

Sunday 28th January 2024
Pegasus Bay Winery, Stockgrove Rd, Waipara

Join in the fun and run or walk amongst the picturesque hills, valleys and vineyards of Pegasus Bay to support the New Zealand Brain Research Institute.

With 6km, 10km and 21km options, as well as a festival atmosphere, there is something for everyone. Plus, with all proceeds going towards NZBRI, it’s a great day out!

Registrations for the Pegasus Bay Vine Run can be made at

If you aren’t able to come along on the day, but still wish to support the event and the NZBRI, you can head to Grassrootz to make a donation.

Or if you are joining us at the Vine Run, why not set yourself another goal and become a fundraiser? Create a page, share to your network, and ask friends and family to not only get behind you and your run, but the NZBRI too.

This is one of our largest fundraising events of the year, so we greatly appreciate any of your support.
