Kidney disease affects over 10,000 people in Wales, and is evident to be increasing year on year particularly in children.  It is a lifelong and life threatening illness which dramatically changes the life of the patients and their families.  Living with the condition can involve lengthy dialysis sessions, sometimes 10 hours a day EVERY DAY, and then there’s the lengthy wait for a kidney transplant.

Taking part, and raising sponsorship at the 2K Family run will help Kidney Wales continue to support families and change the lives of kidney patients here in Wales.  Your efforts will allow Kidney Wales to continue to provide better facilities for patients within hospitals and dialysis units across Wales, improve the lives of children who visit the Children’s Kidney Centre by funding a Specialist Paediatric Renal Social Worker.

There is no minimum sponsorship requirement, every little will help Kidney Wales continue their fantastic work.  Following registration you will receive a sponsorship form, and fundraising guide.  All children taking part in the race will also receive a finishers medal and tshirt.
