The Move: Charity supports teenagers and young adults who are living with and beyond cancer to get moving again after treatment/surgery.
National Cancer Survivorship Initiative states that there is; ‘Persuasive evidence that a healthy lifestyle during and after cancer is associated with improved physical and psychological well-being.’
This is what the charity delivers to its participants via an 8 week online programme as well as valuable website resources and a podcast.
In addition, the Charity provides 5k Your Way, a community-based initiative to encourage those living with and beyond cancer, families, friends, and those working in cancer services to walk, jog, run, cheer or volunteer at a local 5k Your Way parkrun event on the last Saturday of every month.
There are four 5k Your Way Events in Greater Manchester at Stretford, Salford Worsley Woods, Oldham and Wilmslow.
5KYW aims to break the social isolation of a cancer diagnosis as we walk and talk and then head for a coffee and cake afterwards to become a support group with a difference.
Our aim is to encourage permanent active lifestyle changes via exercise and we think 5KYW is a natural extension to Prehab4Cancer in GM
