Elizabeth doesn't let Cancer stop her from enjoying her life!
The We Are Undefeatable campaign supports people with long-term health conditions to be more active. It encourages individuals to find ways to move that work with their conditions rather than against them.
With any health condition, the way you feel can change daily. There will be days when you can move more and days when you can’t. Every achievement, no matter how small it might seem, is worth celebrating.
We support We Are Undefeatable in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to help local people find ways to move with their health condition.
Nancy lives with generalised anxiety disorder. The pandemic could have been her worst nightmare but boxercise and running gave her something to focus on.
“Exercise gives me a great outlet to punch any frustration and stress away. It takes me out of my own head.”
“Most importantly, it gives me back some control. When you can’t really plan anything about your life, you know you can plan to do some exercise.”
We Are Undefeatable provides practical support and inspiration to help you find ways to be active that work for you and your condition.
Movement doesn’t have to be big and it doesn’t have to be the same every day. Start small and do what’s right for you each day. And don’t forget to celebrate your achievements.
Take a look at the We Are Undefeatable website for help to get started.

We’re on the lookout for Hampshire and Isle of Wight stories. If you have found ways to be active that suit you and your long-term health condition then we would love to hear from you. Get in touch with Emily.
We are launching a Hampshire and Isle of Wight network to drive the campaign at a local level. The network will connect people who are passionate about supporting individuals with long-term health conditions to move more.
