Following the success of our Taith Dros Gymru virtual challenge, we are pleased to be able to bring this back for anyone who missed out on taking part !
Help unite our kidney community throughout 2021 by taking on a 531 mile tour of Wales virtually visiting each of the 18 dialysis units across the country.
We know 531 miles is a challenge, but how you complete the challenge is up to you! You can walk, jog or cycle the distance and you have a full year to complete the challenge. That is 1.5 miles a day, 5,000 steps each day across the year and you will have succeeded and completed the challenge.
If you would prefer, you can team up with family members, friends or colleagues to achieve the distance as a group. A great way to keep your family connected whilst we continue to face social distancing restrictions.
The cost to enter is £20 per person, your entry fee will include an electronic fundraising pack, the full support of the Kidney Wales team in taking on your virtual challenge as well as a bespoke Taith dros Gymru medal to celebrate your incredible achievements upon completion of the challenge.
The challenge will begin at the beginning of Organ Donation Week Monday 19th September and will end Monday 18th September 2023. You can record your distance throughout the year using the ‘distance record form’, once you have completed all 531 miles you are asked to notify us via email you will then receive your medal within 15 working days in the post.
This certainly is an almighty challenge, If you feel you are able to gain support from friends and family as you take on the challenge please consider collecting donations on behalf of Kidney Wales throughout your virtual journey.
