The Walk for Life season is upon us, however due to the unprecedented circumstances we are currently faced with many of our scheduled walks due to take place over the coming months has been cancelled.  As a small independent charity we depend on these types of fundraising events to enable us to continue the services we provide to patients and their families across Wales.   With the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19) it is more important than ever that we are able to support our Kidney Community here in Wales.  This is why it is crucial for us to continue our planned fundraising activities as best as we can enabling us to continue providing guidance and support during these anxious times.

For this reason, we are calling on you to join us in April, May, June,  July or August  for our Virtual Walk for Life event.  The beauty of a virtual event is that it can take place anywhere at any time.  If you would prefer you can also take on this challenge based on step count. We are asking that you select your distance 2K, 5K, or 10K.  If you are choosing to do this challenge at home, our suggestions would be 2K = 2624 steps , 5K = 6561 steps, 10K = 13123 steps.
Please ensure that you are continuing to abide by the current Government Guidelines on social distancing when undertaking this challenge.

All walkers will receive a Walk for Life tshirt and a finishers medal to celebrate your fantastic achievement.

Following registration the Kidney Wales team will be in touch to arrange your walk tshirts.

Entry Fee
£12 per individual
£6 per child
£30 per family of 4

If you are able, it would be great to have you join us as part of this initiative, not only are you helping to raise money for a fantastic cause, you will be improving your health and wellbeing during these extremely difficult times.
If you have any questions at all about how the virtual walk will work, don’t hesitate to contact us on team@kidneywales.cymru or call 02920 343940.
We look forward to virtually walking with you
