From June 6th-10th, over 400 Cisco employees, families, and friends from 21 countries will be hiking the Camino de Santiago in support of the fight against cancer.
Our team the “WANderers” – sorry to those in IT, will be hiking 115km of the French route in the aid of Cancer Research UK.
Cancer Research UK is an independent charity funding vital research for the treatment and prevention of Cancer, they also contribute to cancer policy, national strategy, and educational communication. Their many contributions to the fight against cancer are best summarised in the following timeline: https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/our-progress
The NHS predicts 1 in 2 people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime, and the World Health Organization accounts cancer to nearly one in six deaths worldwide. I’m certain for many of you these statistics will strike a chord personally, for myself, it took my late Grandfather Lewis Smith - one of the most fantastic men that I’ve known and who continues to be a constant inspiration to this day.
Without the incredible work of charities such as Cancer Research UK, this disease is a bleak sentence, so for our time in Camino, we will walk for those researchers and carers who treat and assist our loved ones, and we will walk for those affected by cancer, especially those who no longer can.
Thank you for your donation, even as little as £1 can fund anything from apparatus to the establishment of full-scale research centres.
Lewis, Abdullah, Anna, and Rami.
