LAGers and MaNGoes participate in the annual Chariots of Fire charity race.

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 is a charity event held yearly since 1992 aimed at raising funds for different charitable organizations in the U.K.
The race course is 1.6 miles long and it crosses the city center, along with Trinity, King's, and Clare college. Our team finished in 1 hr 12.5 mins, resulting in 32nd place out of 215 mixed teams and 87th out of 333 overall. The team raised £260 to support a vital project at the University of Cambridge exploring why people with Down's syndrome develop Alzheimer's.

Special thanks to Amberley Stephens, Post-doctoral researcher in the MNG for organizing this team effort, way to go Amberley!
