This is the third year Munster Rugby and Timberland have jointly supported a fundraising initiative with previous events including the Kerry Way Challenge for CARI and the 3 Peaks Challenge for Enable Ireland. C.R.O.S.S. were one of Munster's three nominated charities for the 2011/12 season.

A significant element of the research programme relates to prevention and treatment of oesophageal and stomach cancer, but the Centre also undertakes research in cancer of the breast, colon, rectum and lung.
