We're raising money for CRUK who are the main funder of our groundbreaking clinical trials!

Story

This summer a group of colleagues and ex-colleagues from the Clinical Trials and Statistics Unit at ICR are challenging themselves to walk, jog, run-walk or run (or in the case of 'pretty muddy' 'scramble') 5k or 10k, in support of Cancer Research UK, who fund the majority of our clinical trials.

We are each challenging ourselves in different ways - some have tentatively taken up running for the first time since the horrors of school PE, some are coming back to running or walking after injury/ill-health, some are attempting a new distance, one is walking 5k as part of her on-going mission to refuse to let her advanced lung cancer dictate how she lives her life.

Each of us is taking part with a slightly different motivation but we are all - in this, and in our day to day work at ICR-CTSU - committed to helping tackle cancer; something that sadly now affects us all one way or another (CRUK estimate that 1 in 2 people in the UK will get cancer in their lifetime).
