The Pank-Athlon

My Story

Over the next 30 days, 13 members of the 'Pankhurst' team in the Manchester office will be running, walking and cycling as far as they can to raise money for our charity of the year, Cancer Research UK. We've deemed this 'The Pank-Athlon' and competing in this will be Josh, Beth, Arun, Nic, Chloe, Greg, Lorna, Lewis, Andy, Catherine, James, Piers and Jade. We wanted to push our limits so we're targeting travelling the same distance from Manchester to Timisoara (Romania) where another of our global offices are based. That's right. 1,890km. In 30 days. On top of our day job. Tough, right? Don't believe it?,Timis,ROU That's why we need your support via donations to keep us motivated and amped for tackling those kilometres every day for the next month. We're hoping to raise £1,000 for cancer research by Friday August 7th 2020. Can you help us? Click 'Donate' and share your support! Each £ raised will help Cancer Research UK achieve its mission to ensure that 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034 and to do this we are supporting the amazing work they do in Manchester. We will be helping to drive research in Manchester by supporting the Re-Write Cancer Campaign, which is bringing life-saving research back to its home next to The Christie Hospital, after the devastating fire in April 2017. Our support will help to fund the new state-of-the-art facility so that scientists, researchers and patients can combine forces to change the face of cancer forever. In Manchester, there are around 2100 cancer cases per year, and around 970 cancer deaths. We want to change that. At Join The Dots InSite Consulting, our staff are passionate about doing some amazing things to help us to support Cancer Research UK. From running marathons to taking on skydives, our amazing team continue to go the extra mile! Thank you for taking the time to read our story. We hope that you will show your support for this worthwhile cause!


Manchester Fire Appeal

Following the fire at the Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Manchester Institute in April 2017, Cancer Research UK has joined together with the largest single-site cancer treatment centre in Europe, the Christie, and the University of Manchester to build a world-class cancer research facility on the site of the destroyed Paterson Building. This partnership expands on the existing one between these organisations. The new research facility will bring together the entire spectrum of cancer research – from discovery through to prevention, early detection, survivorship and living with cancer.
