5k Your Way initiative looking for parkrun ambassadors
Posted: Tue, 12 Jul 2022 15:55
5k Your Way, launched by Move Against Cancer charity, is a community-based initiative and a support group with a difference. Their aim is to encourage those living with and beyond cancer, their families and friends, and those working in cancer services to walk, jog, run, cheer or volunteer at a local 5k Your Way group at designated parkrun events on the last Saturday of every month.
The 5k Your Way initiative is new to Dorset, and has been funded by Active Dorset through their Together Fund. The fund exists to help reduce the negative impact of coronavirus and help community groups working with under-represented groups to grow and help more people.
5k Your Way are looking for ambassadors to come on board to lead the group, be there on the last Saturday of every month and help promote the group too.
They are looking to launch at the following locations in Dorset in two phases:
Phase One - September 2022:
Phase Two - October 2022:
Anyone is welcome to get in touch to find out more. 5k Your Way would particularly love to hear from you if you are a health care professional or work in cancer services as they would really appreciate your help in promoting the group to your colleagues and patients.
