August 14, 2012, 10:36 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Supporting breast cancer research has never been easier thanks to Generations Walk. Since 2005 this well organised, family event has raised more than £300,000 for various breast cancer campaigns. In 2012 the event returns to the same winning formula on London's Hampstead Heath of a 5km, multi-generation sponsored walk. The event will be in support of a new project however. Dr Jeremy Blaydes from the University of Southampton is conducting research into why chemotherapy stops in 40% of cancer patients with the main aim being to develop treatment to overcome this resistance.
The walk will take up to one and a half hours and will culminate with a picnic on Hampstead Heath for all participants. The event takes place on 9 September and costs £10 per adult and £5 per child to register. A minimum of £50 sponsorship is required from every adult and child over 12-years old.
