Oxford Town and Gown 10k

The Town and Gown is an annual 10k race event which takes places around our Oxford science area and the money raised goes to the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. Members of the Zitzmann lab and Oxford Glycobiology Institute have a team, The Oxford Drug Runners, and money has been raised for not only the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign but also Macmillan Cancer Support and the Emily Ash Trust.




The Zitzmann lab has a group called Zitzmos which takes part in Movember. Male members of the lab (Zitzmen or Mo Bros) grow their moustaches during the month of November with encouragement from the female members of the lab (Zitzwomen or Mo Sistas) to raise money for prostate cancer and other cancers in men. At the end of November the lab celebrates with a Mo Parté to “show your Mo”.
