We're proud to support We Are Undefeatable, the national campaign and movement that aims to inspire and support people with long term health conditions to build physical activity into their lives, in a way that their condition allows.
The campaign is inspired by, and features, the real-life experiences of people with long term health conditions, such as depression, cancer, asthma, heart disease or type 2 diabetes, getting active in a way they works for them, despite the ups, downs and unpredictability of their condition.
We Are Undefeatable is led by 15 of the major health and social care charities and is backed by expertise, insight and significant National Lottery funding from Sport England, the organisation behind the award-winning This Girl Can campaign.
Here are a few ideas on how to get active by water wherever you are:
With 2,000 miles of canals and rivers winding their way through England and Wales, lots of people live within easy reach of our tranquil towpaths. If you're not sure, take a look at our waterway map.
Within moments, you can leave the everyday world behind and explore the simple but active ways being by water can be good for your health and your happiness. Discover how easy it is to fit a short walk or maybe a slightly longer ride into your daily life.
Meet some of the people taking to the towpath to beat their own long-term conditions in a way that their condition allows and works for their lifestyle:
