Run with us or support our runners!

Run4Brain is an initiative from Schelstraete Delacourt AssociatesInterSearch Belgium and Ghent University aimed at raising money for brain research through participation in the ‘20km de Paris’. Vanessa Delacourt and Frank Schelstraete will be running the race on October 14 alongside a team of business leaders and colleagues. You can support Run4Brain by participating or by sponsoring one or more of the runners.

Why Run4Brain?

Although one in three people will eventually suffer from brain disease, a mere 10% of total scientific resources is allocated to brain research. This represents a significant gap, that can only be filled by private initiatives such as Run4Brain. Therefore, Paul Boon and Vanessa Delacourt initiated Run4Brain, a project that is close to both their hearts and minds.

Professor Paul Boon MD, PhD, is a neurologist and the founding father of the 4Brain research team at Ghent University Hospital which aims at unravelling the complexity of brain mechanisms in order to identify new therapies for the most prevalent neurological disorders. Thanks to this research, Ghent University Hospital has been able to conduct groundbreaking international research trials. In this way, the brain research team wants to make a difference for the ever-growing group of one in three people who live with brain disorders.
