If you are living with cancer in Aberdeenshire, we teamed up with Macmillan to offer a free programme to help you get and stay active. Our activities are suitable for everyone, regardless of where you are in your cancer journey.
We will ask you a few questions, listen to what you have to say and then discuss ways of making physical activity part of your life. It doesn’t matter if you have never been a particularly active person. We run classes for all abilities and even activities such as gardening or walking could be part of your programme.
Taking part in physical activity during and after cancer treatment can play a huge part in enabling you to take back control. It can help you prevent and manage the effects of treatment such as fatigue, depression and risks to your heart health.

This is a class which is suitable for all levels and can be modified by specialist Cancer Rehabilitation Instructor to suit your ability whether that be during or after treatment.
These classes are led by Paths for All Walk Leaders who have also undergone Macmillan Volunteer Training. They are adapted to suit your needs and open to all abilities whether you are only able to walk round the block or a full hour. These walks usually end up somewhere for a cuppa.
These classes are a more gentle class with an element of relaxation and can be done seated.
