We are delighted to have the ‘Can U Help?’ fundraising event, hosted by UCC Biomedical Science Society and seven other collaborating societies from UCC, back again for a second year of fundraising for CUH Charity.

This year the event will be held over a week (16th – 20th November). The people of Cork are encouraged to get involved in the campaign by completing “5k in your 5k” or by taking a photo while wearing the colour blue and spreading the word by using #CanUHelp and tagging @UCCBiomedicalScienceSociety on Instagram, @UCCBiomedicalScienceSociety on Facebook and @UCCBiomedSoc on Twitter. Donations to the online fundraiser can be made at www.idonate.ie/CanUHelp. Each donor will automatically be entered into a raffle to win some incredible prizes!

Funds raised will go towards Cancer Trials Cork, based in CUH, where oncologists are partnering with researchers in UCC and national and international universities to bring new diagnostics, treatments and support services to patients faster. Support to develop such investigator-initiated clinical trials is critical in the coming years to improve patient outcomes and the patient experience.
