About

The Taith Dros Gymru is back, and we'd love you to be involved! 

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.

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. If you would prefer, you can team up with family members, friends or colleagues to achieve the distance as a group.  

The cost to enter is £20 per person, your entry fee will include a digital Kidney Wales fundraising pack  and a bespoke Taith dros Gymru medal to celebrate your incredible achievements upon completion of the challenge. 

The challenge will begin during Organ Donation Week on Monday 19th September 2022 and will end Monday 18th September 2023.   

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.
