Sixty runners brave the weather to raise funds for GASTROCAN

GASTROCAN researchers at the University of Aberdeen to benefit from the efforts of dedicated participants at Run Balmoral

On Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April 60 hardy and dedicated fundraisers took part in the annual Run Balmoral event on Royal Deeside to raise money for GASTROCAN, the University of Aberdeen fund which supports research to improve treatment for oesophageal and gastric cancer.

The participants, who ranged from volunteer fundraisers to corporate groups to members of University staff braved freezing temperatures and hail storms to run between 5K and 15 miles to help raise funds for research into these particularly devastating forms of cancer.

Professor Russell Petty, consultant medical oncologist at NHS Grampian and clinical senior lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, said “I am so grateful to every single one of the Run Balmoral participants for their fundraising efforts to raise money for GASTROCAN. All the funds raised will provide vital assistance for our research programme of clinical trials and laboratory research to develop better treatments for gastro-oesophageal cancer. Through this research, we are helping patients in the north east gain access to the best possible personalised treatments as well as aiming to develop more effective treatments for the future.”

The money raised is still being collected by each of the generous participants and the total raised will be announced shortly.

Fundraising income for GASTROCAN is channelled through the University of Aberdeen Development Trust which is an independent registered charity.  The Trust raises essential funds to support much of the University’s activities such as vital medical research as well as supporting students through the provision of scholarships, bursaries and facilities.  Funding from alumni, individuals, companies, organisations and the community is essential for the development of the medical research undertaken by GASTROCAN and many other activities.
