The event is being organised by Boutros Bear, a hybrid healthcare company that delivers transformative care, recovery and rehabilitation programmes for employees struggling with chronic and persistent conditions, including cancer.

Sheila Kissane-Marshall, founder and CEO, said: “It’s a day to raise awareness of the amount of people in the world who have a cancer diagnosis – and the prevalence is increasing.”

But Sheila noted that long-term survival rates have more than doubled in recent years. “Because people now do have these long-term survival rates, it’s important that their quality of life is good,” she said, “and one of the most beneficial things of quality of life, and reducing the risk of a recurrence of cancer, is increasing frequency of exercise.”

Cancer patients, clinicians, family members, friends, colleagues and four-legged friends are all welcome at the event.

Sheila has also invited people who work in the biotech and life sciences sectors in and around Cambridge to take part.
