Support Dimitrios as he runs not one, but two charity races to help beat cancer
27 September 2023
NDS researcher Dimitrios Doultsinos is getting set to run a half marathon and a full marathon this autumn for the CRIS Cancer Foundation.
The CRIS Cancer Foundation is an international charity that funds cutting-edge research into pioneering new cancer treatments to give people the best chance of survival. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world. Yet, many lives could be saved if scientists had the resources they need to carry out research into pioneering new treatments. CRIS - which stands for 'Cancer Research Innovation in Science' - gives scientists in the UK, Spain and France the support and funds to accelerate the discovery of cancer treatments for adults and children.
Dimitrios, who is a PCF Young Investigator Research Fellow within the Oxford Prostate Cancer Biology Group, will join the CRIS team in the most iconic run in London, The Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 8 October. The following month he will continue his fundraising efforts by competing in the Athens Authentic Marathon on Sunday 12 November.
Please visit Dimitrios’ fundraising page if you would like to donate and help him reach his target of £500.
