BSoT Fun Runs
In recent years, at the BAUS Annual Congress, BSoT has hosted a fun run to support The Urology Foundation (TUF). Unfortunately, 2020 meant that we had to rethink this.
During what should have been BAUS week, in June 2020, BSoT held a "virtual" Fun Run for TUF (see #BSoTFunRunforTUF on Twitter). This proved to be a massive success as people ran, cycled, walked and swam for TUF, eventually raising over £2,000 with more than 90 participants.
With the recent announcement that BAUS 2021 will also take place as a virtual meeting, we are looking forward to organising another fun run in June 2021.
