Our fantastic team ran for Surgical Research in the ASICS London 10k. Raising £4,500.00
Date: Sunday 21 July 2019 Location: Central London
Our team was made up of surgeons, RCS staff and an anaesthetist who all did an amazing job. 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 the very first 10k, 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.
