White Coat Walk for Cancer Research

People taking part in the first-ever 'White Coat Walk' for Cancer Research at Queen's University Belfast

A TEAM of science researchers at Queen's University Belfast has taken part in the first ever Worldwide White Coat Walk to raise money for charity.

The School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering’s Green Impact Team held the 2.65km walk at noon on Wednesday to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.  

Similar walks were held across the world as a symbol of the fight against cancer. 

Everyone involved wore white lab coats or white clothing and paid a minimum £5 donation to the charity.

Katherine McBride, an organising member of the Green Impact Team, said they aimed to raise as much money as possible.  

"All of the team have known someone to be affected by cancer so we were delighted to be able to choose to support the work of Cancer Research UK through this fundraiser," she said.

"They are the largest charitable funder of cancer research here at Queens University and we are delighted to support their work."
