Find out what #MovingCan do for you

December 11, 2018

Every day in January we’ll promote a different benefit of physical activity.  That’s 31 of them!

 "For if physical activity was a pill , every doctor in the land would prescribe it every day."

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter we're using the hashtag #movingcan 

If you have a health condition and are using physical activity to help with this, we would love to hear from you, please engage with us on social media or send us your story joanna.coleman@cumbria.gov.uk
