This podcast aspires to support and inspire people to move, exercise and live an active and fulfilling life despite a cancer diagnosis. We share the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
We hope that by sharing the stories of others finding their own way through cancer, the Move Against Cancer podcast will provide hope, support and a sense of empowerment to anyone living with or beyond cancer.
Unfortunately, cancer will affect everyone either personally or through our loved ones and so whatever position you are in we hope you will learn and be inspired by our podcast. Thank you so much for listening.

The MOVE Charity Ball was a HUGE success!!
All money fundraised from the ball goes towards Move Charity and 5k Your Way, to help and support more people to Move Against Cancer!
The MOVE as ONE private Facebook support group has been set up by young people affected by cancer and it's for young people affected by cancer.
The group for 18-30 year olds was the idea of Sophie Mulligan, who completed the MOVE programme in 2020. You'll be welcomed into the group by Sophie or one of our other two admins, Liam and Millie, who have both been supported by MOVE Charity.
"I hope it gives people a place where they can ask for advice and stay motivated to keep active, regardless of whether they are on the MOVE programme or not," Sophie says.
Kicking off our educational workshops with a super informative online workshop on cancer related fatigue, to support people diagnosed with cancer, run by our own Gemma Hiller-Moses, MOVE Charity Founder and Cancer rehab specialist.
This workshop focused on:
- What is cancer related fatigue
- How it can affect you
- Ways to adapt your lifestyle to improve your symptoms.
5k Your Way has now officially relaunched and we couldn't be happier!
After a year and a half waiting, we finally were able to meet up again to do 5k our way and reunite.
A massive well done to everyone who joined us to walk, run, volunteer, or cheer!
See you on the last Saturday of every month!
