PainAdelaide at your place! Help us take it to the world!

PainAdelaide is possibly the best little pain meeting in the world. This year is no exception – we have Prof Frank Keefe, Prof Gian Domenico Iannetti, Prof Serge Marchand, A Prof Kevin Vowles, A Prof Greg Crawford and a gaggle of other top shelf speakers. They all have to answer this question before we let them off the stage – So what? We will have Dr Sam Whittle running the inaugural PainAdelaide Q & A. Everyone will come prepared to speak to a crowd of clever people, many of whom are clinicians, and make it make sense. The feedback we have got on previous years is outstanding.

But there’s a problem. Most of you can’t make it to PainAdelaide on April 4th. Even though we are arguably the wine capital of the world, and we have some of the nicest cycling routes on the planet, some of you still simply can’t make it. Many of you have asked if we can film it and make it available online afterwards. We don’t have the budget for that – we are tiny and we are getting the best of the best to give their time so we are squeezing the margins. However, YOU CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN. We need 100 of you to support our campaign on Chuffed.org by donating AU$50 to our cause. If we can get just 100 people to select the AU$50 Perk called ‘Premium access pass to PainAdelaide at your place’, we will be able to get the production company to turn possibly the best little pain meeting in the world into a video package that you can watch, at your own pace and at your own place. It will be available about two weeks after the actual event, so we are thinking about April 18th.

What if we don’t make it to 100 supporters?  Well this is the risk you take. If we don’t make it, then we don’t film it and your donation goes straight to supporting pain research. So you will still be able to sleep at night, just not after you have been virtually at our meeting.

What if we get more than 100 supporters?  Once we reach our target, then we are on. If you sign up after we reach the target, then the same access will cost you AU$75.  If we get more than 300 supporters, we will up the fee again, so there is merit in getting in early!

What if I want an Exclusive Ride for Pain Cycling Jersey? Funnily enough, as luck would have it, we have something just for you. We have a few left over from the 2015 ride and they are available as a separate perk – AU$25 plus postage. They are a bargain and a half – you would pay upward of $70 for this quality of shirt at your local wiggle. Check them out on our Chuffed.org page – there is nothing like the orange polkadots for looking great on the bike and starting a conversation.

So, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help us make this a reality and support our campaign. Click here.
