Medway Can (Move a Mile)

Save this item

Medway Can is a new campaign to encourage everyone to live healthier lives and become more active, challenging local organisations including employers, organisations, education settings, food providers, residents, and health professionals to help tackle obesity in Medway.

Being overweight increases our risk of suffering from long term health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and can lead to a stroke.

Move a Mile

In support of the Medway Can campaign, everyone who lives, works, and learns in Medway is being encouraged to share how they’re moving a mile by using #MedwayCan on social media.

Hop, skip, and jump your way to a mile today!

Move a mile – log your miles

Schools and community organisations across Medway will be holding activities throughout the year to get Medway moving and there will be something for everyone to take part in. The campaign also supports our aspiration to make Medway even more child-friendly.

For charities and community groups

There is funding available to help charities and community groups get involved in the Medway Can campaign. The possibilities are endless. For example, you might want to:

  • fund some exercise classes
  • buy kitchen equipment to help your community cook healthy meals
  • or buy some high-vis jackets to start a regular walking group.

Whatever your idea, organisations can apply for between £200 and £800 for each project. There are 3 opportunities to apply for funding in 2022.
