New courses launched for Active Beyond Cancer programme

Leeds Rhinos Foundation and Yorkshire Cancer Research are delighted to announce that their hugely successful Active Beyond Cancer programme will return in April for men and women affected by cancer.

The free rehabilitation programme will run virtually for 10 weeks via Zoom and is available to people at any stage of their cancer treatment. The course aims to aid participants by increasing fitness levels, improving their quality of life and building confidence.

The class provides a fun, social setting, with participants able to choose from a morning or evening option for both the weekly healthy lifestyle and physical activity sessions.

Amy Livingstone, Health Improvement Officer for Leeds Rhinos Foundation, commented, “I’m really pleased that we are able to offer our successful Active Beyond Cancer programme virtually to support people living with cancer to improve their fitness, health and wellbeing.

“Each week will we will look at different ways to improve your health and wellbeing through interactive educational sessions. This is followed by a taster session of different physical activities, which are aimed at helping you to build confidence, achieve your goals and find an activity you really enjoy!

“When you sign up, our team will get in touch with you to provide any help you need with getting online to access the course and to ensure you still receive the same level of bespoke, tailored support offered at our face-to-face sessions.”

Research shows that achieving 30-minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per day can help reduce the risk of reoccurrence of certain cancer types by up to 50 per cent as well as prevent other long-term health conditions.

“The Active Beyond Cancer programme enable you to receive the right support with taking part in physical activity, safely and effectively.”
