Compass Fostering Proud to Support MOVE Charity
Being diagnosed with cancer means people face an extremely tough journey. There is so much thrown at you both physically and mentally during treatment and it doesn’t just stop there. This is why MOVE provide practical and online support to people living with and beyond cancer. We focus our services on children and young people living with and beyond cancer and a wider age range through our new 5k Your Way, Move Against Cancer initiative linked to parkrun.
A cancer diagnosis can be life changing, MOVE is there to support those diagnosed every step of the way through the power of movement, physical activity, and exercise.
According to MOVE’s website, the current evidence base for cancer survivorship strongly encourages participation in physical activity, with the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative stating that there is ‘persuasive evidence that a healthy lifestyle during and after cancer is associated with improved physical and psychological well-being’.
MOVE provides practical support through their online support programme for children and young people. Their 5k Your Way, Move Against Cancer groups are available for all ages and abilities.
The charity ran a fundraising ball in November, celebrating the amazing work they do along with raising awareness to all they do. MOVE managed to raise an incredible £25,000 (and counting) for the charity.
They said “we are blown away by all the incredible support and love in the room last night. 200 wonderful people making last night such a huge success”.
Some of our Compass team were lucky enough to be invited along, and our board of operations had a wonderful evening fundraising for the charity. It was brilliant to be able to scrub up and do our bit!
The night involved:
• Live music from Adam Sheldon
• Lots of fundraising
• Lewis Moses our epic host
• Reverse bingo
• The incredibly inspiring Sophie sharing her moving story
• Silent and live auctionsss.
• The man, the legend, Steve Cram live on stage
• Red bull champion break-dancers
• And the fantastic band The Jamlocks for one hell of a party to finish
Compass were so proud to be a part of the fundraiser, and to be able to support such an incredible cause. If you would like to donate to MOVE, please click on the aforementioned link.
