The survival rate for brain cancer has barely improved over the last 30 years. Researchers based at the Centre for Cancer Biology aim to find new and improved treatments for this devastating disease.

Their work has been supported by the Neurosurgical Research Foundation, and in turn, the researchers would like to support the NRF through two key fundraising events.

The first event is a 6km walking tour through North Adelaide on Friday 6th November. We will visit a few key sites along the way to ensure we stay hydrated. The second event is a challenging half marathon row to get the heart rate up!

Two of the CCB’s researchers, Melinda Tea and Victoria Pope from the Molecular Signalling Laboratory, will be combining their efforts to row a total of 21,098 metres between them on Sunday 15th November.

They are aiming to raise $1000 for the Neurosurgical Research Foundation.

"Please join us for the walk, or if walking is not your thing, please consider making a donation through our team's page. It only takes a minute and any money you can give (no matter how large or small) will go a long way to helping us not only reach our target but keep us motivated during our half marathon row!" Mel said.

Please donate now! Thank you.
