The Macmillan Move More Ayrshire Step Count Challenge is off to a fantastic start with 271 health and social care professionals taking part. The 4-week challenge is an opportunity to find out more about the Move More North Ayrshire, Move More East Ayrshire & Move More South Ayrshire’s physical activity programme for people living with cancer, whilst also having the chance to get more active and win prizes. Move More Ayrshire is a partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support and KA Leisure, East Ayrshire Council and South Ayrshire Council.

Reasons for teams taking part in this challenge have ranged from “to become more active” and “as a team building activity to get fitter and healthier”.
