Chris French

Gareth Roberts and Colin Caine to run the Leicester Marathon in memory of Chris French…

On Sunday 31st October Lestercast’s Gareth and Colin will be embarking on the Leicester Marathon. They aim to raise as much money as possible for the Birmingham University Clinical Trials Unit which supported our much loved colleague and friend, Chris French who passed away in July 2020 from Bowel Cancer.

Globally renowned for their academic excellence, Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Unit (CRCTU) collaborates with clinician investigators driving cutting-edge research, with a focus on treatments that will change outcomes for people with cancer. Their trials play a large part in influencing new medical practice, improving patient care and reducing treatment side effects.
