In England, half of all adults are not active enough to benefit their health. This means that they are at risk of developing serious illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Walking for Health is England’s largest network of health walks with over 400 active schemes, helping people across the country lead a more active lifestyle. Running with great success for over 14 years, improving the mental and physical well-being of thousands of people.
Walking for Health is run by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support. By sharing their walking and health expertise they enable our schemes to offer short, free, local health walks in communities across England. The partnership demonstrates both organisations ambition to help more people, including those affected by cancer, discover the joys and health benefits of walking.
