From zero to one hundred kilometres.

Board Director Madeline Tynan has taken on the SSMRF Dash & the Kokoda Trail & will soon launch The Michael Tynan Memorial Challenge – walking 100km in two days from Wollongong to St.George while raising much needed funds for medical research. This adventure celebrates Michael Tynan & the Tynan Motors Community 50th Anniversary. Email us today if you’re interested in joining the walk or becoming a corporate sponsor.

Our golf day at The Australian last week was a roaring success, with the collective generosity of our golfers and sponsors helping us to smash our fundraising target. As our CEO Peter Christopher said on the day, “Doctors and researchers are inquisitive, they’re exploring beyond what we know now. But if they don’t, we stand still.” Click here to see the photos.
