MoveWell

The Limerick Sports Partnership through its Physical Activity for Health section, MoveWell, will aim to educate, innovate and implement programs and initiatives for people managing chronic conditions.

What is physical activity?

Physical Activity is any body movement that works your muscles and uses more energy than you use when resting.

Why is physical activity important for our health?

  • In Ireland, an estimated one quarter of the population (1.2 million) suffer from cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic disease,
  • Half the population are overweight or obese,
  • Cancer affects one in three.
  • 10% of adults report having experienced a mental health problem.
  • The Mid-West of Ireland, in line with national trends is facing a rising epidemiology of chronic conditions (cardiovascular disease, stroke, respiratory and metabolic disease).
  • Chronic conditions account for 75% of all deaths.

How will we tackle this?
