Walk for Life 2017


The Walk for Life remains one of Kidney Wales’ longest running events and is key to raising vital funds for the charity. Over 30 years old, the Walk for Life is an event for all the family and continues to bring communities together and encourage everyone to join Kidney Wales in the great outdoors to walk and vital raise funds.

From treasure hunts to sunset hikes, through parks, on beaches and up some of Wales’ highest peaks, Kidney Wales supporters have led walks all across the country and brought communities together for a fun event for all.

The Walk for Life series is made possible by its Walk Organisers.

The 2017 Walk for Life series will be take place on the 23rd of April (although this may vary depending on the Walk for Life location). With 2017 being Kidney Wales’ 50th year, we’re hoping to make it our best series yet and we can’t wait to see our Kidney Wales supporters join us this year and help us make a difference to those living with kidney disease in Wales.


Have you or someone you know been affected kidney disease?

We are asking for your help to organise a walk in your community. The money raised from this event will help change the lives of kidney patients and allow us to support them and their families, form providing support groups, refurbishing renal units or helping with the day-to-day financial costs of living with this kidney disease.

Interested in holding a Walk for Life in your community?

Your walk can be in a geographic location of your choice and of any distance – we have walks of all shapes and sizes taking place. Holding a walk is lots of fun and a brilliant way to show your support to those in need. If you would like to create a Walk for Life in your community, town or village please contact us today and we will send you a bespoke fundraising pack tailored to your event.
