Macmillan Cancer Support Takeover

We’re going green to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support!

Social media takeover 8th-14th June.

Our charity partner, Macmillan will be taking over our social media channels from  8th -14th June to raise some much needed funds and we need your help. By joining one of our live or pre-recorded online classes you could help us raise money for this worthwhile charity.

We’re running a Power of 3 challenge throughout the week where we’re encouraging as many people as possible to join 3 classes, nominate 3 friends to join in and donate £3 to Macmillan – it couldn’t be simpler!

Macmillan’s ambition is to be there for every person living with cancer and provide them with tailored support when they need it most. While cancer is not always life threatening, it’s almost always life changing, and having the right support can have a huge impact on a person’s physical and emotional well-being, as well as significantly improve a patient’s recovery.

Every 5 minutes, over 3 people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. * Just £3 could pay for 5 copies of Macmillan’s ‘Emotional effects of cancer’ booklet. This is one of their most popular resources, offering advice and information on sources of support to people affected by cancer, who may experience a wide range of emotions including fear, loneliness, and anger.

Let’s join forces during these uncertain times to raise a target of £1,000. This would be enough to fund a Macmillan nurse for over 34 hours, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

If you’re looking for something different, why not take part in our alternative power of 3 challenge for Macmillan – Keep Your Eye On The Ball:

  • How many keepie-uppies can you do in 60 seconds using any golf club and golf ball (you can drop it as many times as you like it doesn’t have to be continuous) – give yourself the best of 3 attempts for this!
  • Film yourself taking part in the challenge
  • Once complete nominate 3 more people to take on the challenge and donate £3 to Macmillan (this is a suggested amount)
  • Post your attempt on Social media with your nominations

A timetable of the classes can be found here.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram to join in! Thank you for playing your part in helping us support Macmillan.

Since the beginning of the partnership last year, Everyone Active has raised: £41,162.59

*Analysis based on the figure of 366,303 diagnoses of cancer in 2017 in the UK, obtained through data published by the national cancer registries.
