What is 'Move more ards & North Down'?

Move More Ards & North Down is a physical activity project that supports people living with and beyond cancer to become and remain active, and to enjoy an improved quality of life as a result. Funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, the project is managed by Northern Community Leisure Trust and is supported by the South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust, Ards & North Down Borough Council and Peninsula Healthy Living Centre.

Why is it important for me to be active?

A recent and growing body of research has shown that physical activity can help to:

  • Reduce the consequences of cancer treatment (e.g. fatigue, weight loss, weight gain, depression, anxiety, loss of mobility)
  • Reduce co-morbidities (e.g. cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, stroke, dementia)
  • Reduce the spread and progression of cancer
  • Decrease the risk of cancer recurrence

We also know that is safe to be active during and after most types of cancer treatment.
