Courageous, inspired individuals, challenging physical limits, through night and day, to raise money and awareness for cancer research: this is the essence of Step Up for the Cure, a 24-hour stair climbing marathon. Every 4 minutes a person is diagnosed with cancer in Canada, so the challenge for each participant is to run 1 set every 4 minutes.
Dr. Mauro Costa-Mattioli, Biochemistry, McGill
Dr. Lidong Liu, Brain Research Centre, University of British Columbia
The Faculty of Law and Institute of Comparative Law, in association with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, invite you to a cocktail reception to celebrate (or decry) Jan Paulsson's new book.
