Celebrate World Kidney Day with us by joining our Pen Y Fan Sunset Trek

 

Pen y Fan is the highest peak in South Wales, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. At 886 metres (2,907 ft) above sea-level, it is also the highest British peak south of Cadair Idris in Snowdonia. The twin summits of Pen y Fan and Corn Du at 873 m (2,864 ft) were formerly referred to as Cadair Arthur or ‘Arthur’s Seat’.

 

On Saturday 4th of March, we would like to unite the kidney community here in Wales taking on this challenging but picturesque trek. Many will have completed the walk before, but have you witnessed the beautiful sunset on the summit surrounded by members of our Kidney Community.

 

The cost to take part is £25 per person which will partially help us cover the event fees. To ensure we are able to continue our work supporting our Kidney Community we ask that you raise a minimum of £75 in sponsorship. You will receive a Kidney Wales fundraising pack and the full support of our fundraising team to help reach your individual fundraising target.  All walkers will receive a Walk for Life Tshirt and Medal.
