In support of the National campaign We Are Undefeatable, we want to share stories of residents in Essex living with long term health conditions and how physical activity is helping manage their condition and providing better mental health and wellbeing.
The We Are Undefeatable campaign is helping people with health conditions find ways to get active, whatever that looks like. There are over 15 million people in England who live with long term health conditions and there are many ways to get moving. In each story you will find a list of physical activities the individual is taking part in and how and where to join in for yourself.
Cindy is living with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Heart failure and Osteoporosis and she gets involved in a number of activities to get out and keep moving. Read her story here.
