In light of the current COVID-19 situation in the UK, we are working hard to deliver these days online. Register below if you are interested to find out more and we will be in touch as soon as possible. 

WHAT IS MEET & MOVE?

Meet and Move events are free one day Health & Wellbeing sessions designed to bring young adults together to meet each other and get active in Maggie’s Centres across the UK. The programme for the day includes guided exercise and yoga classes, a talk on nutrition including a delicious lunch, and other expert sessions such as coaching, supporting loved ones, work and cancer, and art therapy. We have delivered these sessions in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Oxford and Newcastle.

"The whole day was organised so smoothly, the only downside was that it went so quickly! I left feeling motivated and inspired to keep going and try keep my body & mind active even when I’m not feeling 100%" Meet & Move Manchester attendee

WHO CAN COME? 

Our Meet & Move days are designed for young adults living with and beyond cancer. They are open to young adults at any stage of their cancer journey: whether you are newly diagnosed, currently in treatment, or have finished treatment. Most Meet & Moves are open to everyone but we sometimes hold Meet & Moves for a specific type of cancer - like our joint event with Sarcoma UK - or for a specific group of people - like our London Male Meet & Move. All participants are welcome to bring a family member or friend with them if they would like to do so. 

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY?

The day runs from 10am to 4pm. Each event begins with a Welcome Session where participants can grab some breakfast and have a chat. Following this, attendees split off into smaller groups for two 45 minute activity sessions with a five minute break in between. The whole group joins together again for lunch. The afternoon includes two more 45 minute sessions and ends with all participants gathering for some relaxation and discussion about the day. The content of the sessions changes for each event but in the past has included guided exercise and yoga classes, a talk on nutrition including a delicious lunch, and other expert sessions such as coaching, supporting loved ones, work and cancer, and art therapy.

"Meet & Move was an amazing day. It was great to meet other people my age who are struggling with fatigue and lack of confidence when it comes to exercise after treatment. I felt a lot more confident after the day. I met some really lovely people too who just get it." Meet & Move London attendee
