40tude curing colon cancer

Charity description

40tude curing colon cancer logo
40tude curing colon cancer is a rapidly expanding group of people who have decided to take action against the second biggest cancer killer in the Western world.

Since it was founded in 2011, 40tude has raised over £800,000 for St. Mark’s Hospital Foundation, supporting the development of pioneering techniques to treat colon cancer.

So far 40tude has successfully sponsored the FLEX project - a new surgical technique to remove colon cancer. We are now supporting the Artificial Bowel Project, a programme to engineer new bowel tissue from patient's own stem cells and have begun funding the PERFECTS programme: to improve and monitor the quality of CT colonographies across the NHS.

Join us for our 2017 fundraising Challenges: our London Stand Up Paddleboard Marathon on the River Thames in June, and our annual 3.5 day, fully-guided Cycle Challenge in Portugal in October.
