Speaking about the upcoming event, Naila Khan, Marketing Manager of Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital said: “Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre is committed to raising awareness about healthy lifestyle. Last year, Fitness Fiesta was a big success so we have added it as a regular feature as part of our awareness campaigns. Growing popularity of group camps dedicated to providing the best fitness experience in Pakistan made us partner with 180 Degrees as well as Khalis Food Market that produces locally grown fresh produce. Some new features have been added for this year including a ‘Kids corner’ and more features for the interests of all age groups.”
Rizwan Naeem, Founder of Khalis Food Market highlighted that: “Shaukat Khanum Hospital has been very close to me since its inception. My late uncle was one of the founding board members, as well as a patient in the later years. What this hospital has done for the people of Pakistan is brilliant! Khalis Food Market, as the pioneers in providing pure foods to Lahore, has always seen itself as a market where people can find healthy options for eating. As part of the Fitness Fiesta, over 50% of all stall charges will be given to the hospital.”
