After the last Parkrun that Miss Tait informed us about.... she has invited YOU to join her on Saturday 14th September at Lister Park for another run/walk.

There is now so much evidence that weight loss, healthy diet and exercise can reduce the risk of breast cancer developing.

Parkrun is free, but you need to register at www.parkrun.org.uk and print out a barcode. Over 300 people usually turn up to Lister park, some people walk the whole course – you won’t be last.

After receiving a cancer diagnosis you may feel like nothing special.
Just remember......
A diamond doesn't start out polished and shining. It once was nothing special, but with enough pressure and time, becomes spectacular.

Be that diamond.

This......There is, yet again, a facebook game doing the rounds, where you post a single heart on your wall to promote breast cancer prevention......
The person posting the ❤️ usually accompanies this with a private message to their female friends asking them to check their breasts.
Usually something like this.....“Hello, can you put a ❤ on your wall, without comment, only a heart, then send this message to your female contacts. After putting one ❤ on the wall of the person who sent you this message. If anyone asks why you have so many hearts on your wall do not answer. It is for women only to remember it’s the week of breast cancer prevention! ❤ Check your boobies!!”

HOWEVER, Instead of posting hearts on your wall to recognise Breast Cancer prevention, YOU CAN’T PREVENT IT, how about sharing this more practical post about being BREAST AWARE, checking your breasts saves more lives than posting a ❤

Cancer doesn't discriminate, young, old, men, women, get checking those breasts 😘

Don't forget to 'like' our page too

The NHS advises seeing a GP if any new lumps appear, especially if accompanied with the following symptoms.
For women:
– a change in the size or shape of one or both breasts
– discharge from either of your nipples, which may be streaked with blood
– a lump or swelling in either of your armpits
– dimpling on the skin of your breasts
– a rash on or around your nipple
– a change in the appearance of your nipple, such as becoming sunken into your breast

For men:
– If any hard, painless lump appears near your nipples
– If your nipple begins to invert or turn in
– Nipple discharge

IF IN DOUBT - GET CHECKED OUT

For the runners, please come along and set a PB!

We had a lovely evening on our Mystery Trip last night.
The coach took us to Skipton and we boarded a Skipton Boat Trips barge for a cruise towards Silsden, with a 2 course meal too!
Back to Skipton for the coach back home again.

Wonder where next years outing will be.... suggestions via messenger welcome!!!
