Event details

Each year, the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre hosts its flagship "1in2 day" which recognises the statistical probability that 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in our life time.

We are asking students, staff, alumni and friends of NTU to help us raise vital funds for life-saving research at our John van Geest Cancer Research Centre, based at Clifton Campus, and ultimately try and defeat the statistics.

The day will have plenty of activities going on around three of our campuses - City, Clifton and Brackenhurst, everything from fancy dress, bake sales, fitness challenges, tombolas and more, with 100% of the money raised going directly to the centre.

If you want to get involved with your own activity, round up your colleagues and friends to take on a challenge and help raise money for the centre, then please contact to confirm
