We use physical activity & exercise to improve the lives of people with cancer


I was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer in May 2017 aged 60 and given a worst case prognosis of 2 years. Exercise has been a vital part of coping with my diagnosis and I believe that it will extend my prognosis. Move Charity are encouraging those living with and beyond cancer to exercise and I was delighted to become the Wilmslow parkrun ambassador and NW regional champion to help develop the initiative across the North West. I hope to raise a few quid to support their amazing work so I’ve decided to try to run or hike at least 5k every day for a year in 2022 (as you do). It will mainly be running but I have a hiking holiday in July so I’ve allowed myself to include hikes but they’ll be proper hikes. Anyway, I’ve got terminal cancer so I can make my own rules up 😀

Being diagnosed with cancer means people face an extremely tough journey. There is so much thrown at you both physically and mentally during treatment and it doesn’t just stop there. MOVE is embarking on a mission to inspire people to #MoveAgainstCancer MOVE provide practical and online support to people living with and beyond cancer. We focus our services on children and young people living with and beyond cancer and also a wider age range through our new 5k Your Way, Move Against Cancer initiative linked to parkrun.
