The TUF get going
Since 2008 urologists and colleagues have cycled in Sicily, Malawi, Madagascar, Patagonia, South Africa and Rajasthan raising more than three quarter of a million pounds for The Urology Foundation (TUF). The seventh and latest installment of the TUF cycling series is a 450km cycle starting in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City and finishing at the world heritage site of Angkar Wat in Cambodia.
The intrepid cyclists have already battled fierce storms, dead pigs on mopeds and bunches of bananas. But as Trend’s Editor Roger Kirby says on the cycle blog, ‘When the going gets rough the TUF get going.’
Funds raised by the cycle will enable TUF to help improve the management and treatment of urological diseases through the development and support of medical education and sponsorship of research – training healthcare professionals specialising in urology and supporting basic and clinical research by funding scholarships in the UK and abroad.
