In 2017, to celebrate our 50th year a team of walkers will embark on a 470 mile / 750 KM walk around Wales visiting each kidney dialysis centre on route. This major awareness and fundraising campaign will begin in Cardiff on Tuesday 18 April 2017 from the city centre.
Along the route our team of walkers will be joined by local supporters, patients and Patrons who has been instrumental in supporting us over the years, to celebrate the successes and achievements of the Kidney Wales to date.
As part of our walk around Wales we are encouraging our supporters to hold their own events when the team are walking in their local area. Perhaps a welcome party, quiz, afternoon tea or a formal dinner to celebrate the walkers achievements and to raise awareness and funds towards this fundraising campaign.
We already have a number of celebration Events confirmed on route at the following locations:
- Newport, Pembrokeshire
- Merthyr Tydfil
We invite you to join us in marking this momentous occasion, and incredible milestone for Kidney Wales. Your support could take the form of sponsorship, the organisation and logistics of organising an event as part of the 30 day challenge, or taking part in the walk itself. We can send branded fundraising materials to help you kick start your planning and fundraising. Also available we have our limited edition Kidney Wales stripy socks, suitable of course to purchase for our Walk Around Wales. To join us on our Walk Around Wales, register online today:
