On Sunday, 17th September 2017, the Laser Analytics Group members Nathan Curry and Pedro Vallejo Ramirez, along with Molecular Neuroscience Group members Amberley Stephens, Nadya Nespovitaya, Ajay Mishra, and Miranda Robbins participated in the annual Chariots of Fire relay race. 

This year’s charity was Alzheimer’s Research UK and we raised £290 to support a vital project at the University of Cambridge exploring why people with Down's syndrome develop Alzheimer's. 

The race course is 1.6 miles long and crossed the city centre, along with Trinity, King's, and Clare college. Although it was a cold foggy morning our team finished in 1 hr 12.5 mins, coming 32nd out of 215 mixed teams and 87th out of 333 overall. 

The donation page is still open if anyone would like to donate to ARUK.
