The Wimbledon Common branch of 5K Your Way Move Against Cancer will be marking its one year anniversary on 28 January.

5k Your Way is a community-based initiative to encourage those living with and beyond cancer, families, friends, and those working in cancer services to walk, jog, run, cheer or volunteer at a local 5k Your Way parkrun event on the last Saturday of every month.

A spokesperson for the group said, “We would love to see as many people affected by cancer as possible on Saturday 28th January for our one year celebration. Please don't hesitate to come, whatever your fitness levels. We mostly walk the route at a slow pace, get some fresh air and chat to others who know what life after a cancer diagnosis is like. “

To join meet at 8.40am at the Windmill on Wimbledon Common looking out for the charity’s team in their bright blue hoodies.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
