Case Study | 5k Your Way

We have recently worked alongside MOVE Charity: 5k Your Way, who encourage those living with and beyond cancer, their families and friends, and those working in cancer services to join their local 5k Your Way group at designated parkrun events on the last Saturday of every month.

This is a great example of how the funding could be utilised to increase physical activity opportunities for those living with Cancer.
