The benefits of regular physical activity for the general population and cancer survivors (breast) are well documented. However the numbers of individuals participating in physical activity at a level to improve health are low. Current physical activity/health promotion recommendations suggest that future initiatives should be embedded and facilitated within the community.

Via a Sheffield Hallam University multidisciplinary team and in partnership with a third sector (voluntary) organisation (Paddlers For Life), it is our aim to test the feasibility of developing an interactive exhibit designed to promote physical activity.
