We are a supportive community that inspires and empowers people impacted by cancer to live an active & fulfilling lifestyle.
5k Your Way is a support group with a difference.
We are a community-based initiative to encourage those living with and beyond cancer, families, friends, and those working in cancer services to walk, jog, run, cheer or volunteer at a local 5k Your Way parkrun event on the last Saturday of every month.
We will help you to find your way to Move Against Cancer.
PLEASE NOTE: *5k Your Way, Move Against Cancer is a non-medical initiative and our ambassadors cannot take responsibility for providing specialist advice or care. Please see our T&C's for full details.
Each of our 5k Your Way, Move Against Cancer meet ups will have one of our wonderful ambassadors there to meet and greet you at a designated meeting spot. Our ambassadors are your 'go to' for each event and will run/walk with some of you if they can. After the walk/run, the ambassadors will gather you together for socialising over a much needed hot drink and cake.
If you are an ambassador, make sure you check our the ambassador area!
This initiative was founded by Lucy Gossage, oncologist at Nottingham City Hospital, a 12 times Ironman Champion, and Gemma Hillier-Moses, international runner and founder of Move Charity who was diagnosed with cancer herself at the age of 24. Lucy and Gemma are both hugely passionate about supporting people living with and beyond cancer through the power of movement, as well as supporting the wider cancer community including friends, family members, and health care professionals.
