The aim of the challenge was to raise as much money as possible and the team set themselves a target to raise £50k and they smashed it!!!  The money raised will help fund a project at the new Molecular Research Centre at The Royal Marsden to understand the genetic pathways of ACC to enable them to find targets and blockers for it. The project will require funding for the next four years.  A fitting way to keep Mel’s memory alive.”
