Dr Dan raises money for St Elizabeth Hospice in Kesgrave 5k Run

On Sunday, Dr Dan was delighted to raise money for St Elizabeth Hospice by taking part in this year's Kesgrave 5k road race, organised by Debbie McCallum.

As a doctor, Dr Dan believes that it is important to lead by example, and although juggling a demanding work schedule, Dr Dan still makes time for sport and exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Making changes to our diet and lifestyle, and doing more exercise can improve both physical and mental health. Dr Dan is a keen sportsman, and plays rugby when time permits.  Dr Dan hopes that his efforts may help to encourage other people with busy lives to make small changes to improve their health and fitness.

Lack of time is often cited as the biggest barrier to people adopting healthier lifestyles, as they often struggle to juggle their busy working, social and family lives. Making time for exercise and healthy nutritional choices can often feel like a luxury or even a chore but taking time out to look after your physical and mental health is one of the most important adjustments you can make.
