Moving more is one of the best things you can do for your health and wellbeing, so we'd love you to put a spring in your step this May and be more active, whilst raising money for local families living with cancer.

Our CEO, Cait Allen, says Move It May is for everyone, whatever your age or level of fitness, and wherever you want to do it:

Being physically active can help to protect against cancer, improve your long-term health and make you feel great. But it can be daunting if you haven't exercised for a while or you're not sure what to do. Simply walking more and sitting less can be hugely beneficial, so we've designed Move It May for everyone. It's entirely up to you to decide how you're going to move more and raise money for local families living with cancer. It could be anything from setting yourself a goal to complete a certain number of steps to tackling an ultra-marathon. We'd love to see younger members of the family getting involved too, perhaps by doing a sponsored scoot, skip or hula-hoop. Just £100 could pay for a month's supply of the products needed to provide the complementary therapies in our cancer Support Centres. Raising £400 could fund a ten session one-to-one support package to help manage the emotional impact of cancer.
