We Are Undefeatable

Published on 13 September 2019 03:02 PM

The campaign "We Are Undefeatable" aims to support people living with health conditions to build physical activity into their lives, in a way that their condition allows, and to celebrate every victory big or small.

Over 1 in 4 people live with at least one long-term health condition and these numbers are rising. You are twice as likely to be inactive if you have a health condition, however being active can help to manage over 20 long-term conditions such as depression and type 2 diabetes; it reduces the risk of developing some conditions by up to 40% and can delay the onset of and reduce the severity of many health conditions.

For the first time ever, 15 leading health and social care charities are launching a national campaign and movement to inspire and support people with health conditions to be active.

The charities are:
Age UK, Asthma UK, Alzheimer’s Society, Breast Cancer Care/Breast Cancer Now, British Lung Foundation, British Red Cross, Parkinson’s UK, Diabetes UK, Macmillan, Mind, MS Society, Rethink Mental Illness, Royal Voluntary Service, Stroke Association, and Versus Arthritis.
