Ivan Donaldson and his wife Christine are co-owners of Pegasus Bay Vineyards and Winery. The Vine Run is Ivan’s brainchild. Pun intended, as proceeds from the event will go to the New Zealand Brain Research Institute, an organisation that Ivan has had a long association with.
Ivan practiced in Christchurch as a neurologist for over 30 years and has been a member of the Institute’s board of directors since its inception. The Institute focuses on research to understand more about neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis.
