Welcome to Cornwall Can

So far an incredible 550 people have signed up losing an impressive… 

1077.24lbs SO FAR


Within the last decade, Cornwall has seen a sharp increase in type two diabetes and obesity related illness, putting enormous amount of strain not only on our health but that of the local NHS. In fact it is estimated, that 10 per cent of hospital admissions are related to both conditions. This figure is set to rise by 2035 and if we don’t act soon, future generations are looking at greater risks to health such as amputation surgery. Putting vast amount of strain on an already over stretched NHS. The worst part is…. Both conditions are preventable and we could help reduce the risk if we just took a little bit more control of our waist lines.

So in June 2018, we set the county of Cornwall a challenge, to lose 50,000lb in weight by December 31st 2019 to improve all of our health. This is a unique online social movement whereby people can come together, share experiences, recipes and embrace the Cornish Community to encourage one another. Because lets face it, trying to lose weight alone, can be an uphill struggle.

 


Residents from across the county have signed up, each getting access to a personal weight loss tracker, handy recipes, tips about exercise, information on local resources and details on upcoming events such as our monthly community walks and Fitbit challenges. We currently have 80 local supporters including Cornwall Council, businesses, gyms, charities and much more all wanting to get on board and help the community come together to reach the target, some are even offering discounted classes for those signed up. 

 

So if you are in Cornwall and want to help us reach our target- sign up for free by clicking the link below!

Today we had a fabulous update from the #MaternityGirlsCan at RCHT.

They have pulled together and created a soup sharing campaign- making devious homemade soup and encouraging healthy eating all at the same time!

Excellent work ladies! We are very impressed!
