We have 4,000 reasons to believe we can beat cancer; that’s how many smart minds are working in the best research facilities across the country to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat this disease.
The CRUK Newcastle Drug Discovery Unit are running, walking, cycling and more to complete a virtual relay starting 4th May for a week. We aim to cover the distance between the five CRUK Drug Discovery Units, starting in Newcastle and 'visiting' Glasgow, Manchester, London and Cambridge and back to Newcastle - it's about 850 miles, but we're rounding up to 1000 just to be sure!
With one in two of us likely to be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetimes, our research is vital. Cancer Research UK is the only charity to research all 200 cancer types without government funding. Support like yours ensures we can continue our work, bringing about more breakthroughs, more treatments and more cures than ever before.
Everything we achieve for our life-changing research is thanks to the generosity and dedication of our volunteers. Simply put, we could not achieve these breakthroughs without your support.
You don’t have to wear a lab coat to beat cancer.
