The world No. 3 is supporting the event ‘Rally Against Cancer’ which will take place on finals day at the AEGON Championships at The Queen’s Club on June 16.
Murray and Henman will be joined by other players and celebrities in a bid to raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, in support of British doubles player Ross Hutchins.
Hutchins was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma in December and has been undergoing treatment at The Royal Marsden hospital in west London.
"As soon as Ross starting talking about the idea, I knew I wanted to get involved,” Murray said. We want to make it a day to remember, so we are talking to a few celebrities, who love their tennis, about coming down and getting involved on the day.”
Hutchins said: "Ever since I was diagnosed and began treatment at The Royal Marsden hospital I have wanted to do something to raise money for them to thank them for their kindness. It's going to be a really great day and for a charity that helps a lot of people and obviously one that means a lot to me."
An additional £10 from each finals day ticket will go to the charity, while the Lawn Tennis Association will donate £10 for every ace hit during the tournament.
