Macmillan Move More Borders with Live Borders

Strong evidence shows that keeping active during and after cancer treatment can help improve physical and emotional outcomes and may reduce the risk of recurrence. Macmillan together with Borders Sport and Leisure Trust have created the Move More programme. Move More Borders is a programme to help people affected by cancer to get moving. With various activities including gentle movement classes, walking and group activity classes, there is something for everyone.
