More border residents will have access to world-class clinical trials on the border thanks to a $22,000 donation to the Albury Wodonga Cancer Centre and the Border Medical Oncology
Last year's Pub2Pub Run raised $11,000, which was matched by the Albury Wodonga Prostate Cancer Support Group.
Currently BMO's research unit has four clinical trials running, with 14 patients involved.

Thurgoona resident, Gary Waugh, has been on a trial for a new drug enzalutamide since 2016 after being diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer.
"I was diagnosed in late 2015 and they found it had spread to my bones," Mr Waugh, 81, said.
"I was asked by my oncologist if I was interested in taking part in a research study and thought that while it might not help me, it might help someone in the future. So I agreed to be a part of it.
"It is fantastic that we can access this research right here in Albury."
The 2020 Pub2Pub Run was due to be held on Sunday, November 8 but was cancelled.
