Challenge events for the Royal College of Surgeons
Coming up in 2020....
A sporting challenge could not only help you to improve your fitness, the money you raise will help us maintain and improve surgical care for patients through our state of the art training and pioneering research. We have a brand new calendar of challenge events and opportunities for 2020 for the already very sporty and those who would like to try something for the first time.
Sue & Tim's cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats - 18 March 2020 - POSTPONED
In response to the challenge of COVID-19, RCS Council members Sue Hill and Tim Mitchell, who were due to start their cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats on 16 April, have regrettably taken the decision to postpone their cycle ride. They feel that it's sensible not to go ahead at this difficult time.
Sue and Tim and their chosen charity Myeloma UK would like to thank everyone who has donated to their Virgin Money page so far, and they will arrange a new date as soon as they can.
Update: Some of these events may be cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 response. For more information, please contact our fundraising team (0207 869 6086 or email@example.com), see our COVID-19 updates, and check the organiser's own website.

Our fantastic team ran for Surgical Research in the Vitality BIG Half on 1 March 2020
Our team all did an amazing job raising £1,954. Everyone managed a smile before, during and after! Thank you for your commitment and for training to run for the College. For several of our team members it was their very first half marathon, WELL DONE.
The money raised is to be used to support our Surgical Research Fund through which we support better care for patients of all ages undergoing any surgical procedure from routine day surgery to life-saving procedures for heart disease or emergency surgery after an accident. Surgical Research and our fellowship programme strives to find a cure for most diseases and cancers, but in many cases surgery remains the most effective treatment and has the highest impact on cancer survival.
If you are interested in running at a future event or are doing a sporting challenge in support of the College, please email and let us know. firstname.lastname@example.org
