Chris and Boris's 3rd Annual Dog Walking Challenge: A 120km Journey for Macmillan Cancer Support

October is here, bringing with it a sense of excitement and commitment in the air at Coliance, especially for our Technical Director, Chris Thorpe, and his loyal dog, Boris. It marks a special time of year as they embark on their 3rd Annual Dog Walking Challenge! This annual event is more than just a fun activity for Chris and Boris; it’s a heartfelt fundraiser that holds deep meaning for everyone involved, particularly for us at Coliance. We are incredibly proud and fully supportive of this initiative, which aims to raise funds and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support. This year, Chris and Boris are taking on the ambitious goal of walking 120km together, with the support of their furry friends.

Unleashing Compassion for a Paw-some Cause

Boris, the endearing canine, knows cancer all too well. He’s navigated the trials of cancer treatment and bravely lives with it every day. This journey has profoundly touched Chris’s heart, igniting a passion to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by cancer. Sadly, Boris’s experience isn’t an isolated one; cancer has woven its thread through the lives of many in Chris’s circle, motivating him to select Macmillan as the beneficiary of his dog walking challenge. Among the organisations dedicated to providing unwavering support, Macmillan Cancer Support stands out for their incredible work.

How Macmillan Makes a Tail-Wagging Difference

Macmillan Cancer Support offers a broad spectrum of assistance throughout the cancer journey. Providing emotional support, practical guidance, physical rehabilitation, and financial aid. They also actively engage in policy advocacy and empower healthcare professionals with resources and training to better assist patients. By conducting essential research and offering workplace support, they ensure that managers and HR professionals are equipped to support employees impacted by cancer.

Currently, the United Kingdom is home to over 3 million people grappling with cancer, and this number is projected to rise to 4 million by 2030. Macmillan’s resolute objective is to help every person confronting cancer lead a life to its fullest potential. Regardless of the enormity of the challenges they face,

Macmillan is committed to going the extra mile, providing a compassionate ear and accompanying individuals on their unique journeys.
