Lions Medical Research Personality Quest
"The research of today could be the cure of tomorrow"
The Lions Medical Research Personality Quest is the main fundraiser for the Lions Medical Research Foundation. The Quest has a proud 45 year history with women focused on raising funds in their communities to ultimately save lives of others. Not only was this the entrants main focus but also each has benefited professionally and personally from their Quest experiences.
Entrants gain by being involved in personal development, improvements in their confidence and self esteem, public speaking, community support and importantly, social awareness thus enhancing the opportunities in their chosen career paths and in their personal lives.
In 2010, the Quest, formerly the Lions Miss Personality Quest, was rebranded to become the Lions Medical Research Personality Quest. It has moved on to a fresher and relevant format aligning it with current trends which will continue to evolve.
The main focus is to raise money so that the Lions Medical Research Foundation can continue to fund 4 medical researchers per year. Each medical researcher is funded for a 3 year term so the Quest works diligently to raise this money, see www.lionsmedicalresearchfoundation.org.au

By taking part in this quest, I have become a more confident, knowledgeable, appreciative and passionate person. I am so grateful for the friendships I have made and all the wonderful opportunities I have been given.
I am so excited and extremely honoured to be representing the Lions Medical Research Foundation and the Quest for the next 12 months."

"Over the past year I have met some amazing people and have come to appreciate just how much non for profit organisation, like the LMRF need our help with raising much needed funds. I thoroughly enjoyed my busy year and would encourage anyone to jump at the opportunity to be a part of the quest. I am very honoured to hold the 2012 Charity Winner title and hope that others can strive towards this over many more years to come.
I will continue to support my club in any of it's endeavours to raise more funds for the foundation in the future!!!"
