5K YOUR WAY is an organisation that aim to encourage those living with, or affected by cancer in any way, an opportunity to get active! We are based at the Rising Sun Country Park Run on the last Saturday of every month (so TOMORROW!!). Come along to walk, jog or run at your own pace with an amazing group of people! We meet at 8:30am for a 9am start – and there is NO pressure to run, or even complete the course! Just come along and do what you can! For more information follow our Facebook ” Rising Sun Newcastle 5K Your Way, Move Against Cancer”.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Increasing physical activity levels can not only reduce your risk of developing certain cancers, but for those living with cancer it can slow cancer progression, increase the chance of cure and reduce relapse rate. For those undergoing treatment, regular exercise can reduce the severity of common side effects such as fatigue and nausea.
