Walk for Wards is a new fundraising event by Cardiff & Vale Health Charity to support wards, departments and appeals across the 9 hospitals in the Health Board. It's open to everyone - staff and public.
At 10am on Saturday 16th May we'll be inviting everyone to walk one and a half miles with us through the lovely green space at Heath Park, starting off from UHW concourse. The route is suitable for mobility scooters, wheelchairs and prams or pushchairs and we welcome participants with all levels of mobility. We also want participants to feel free to commit to walking the route twice, or using it as the starting off point for longer sponsored walks to raise money for their wards!
Registration for the event is free but we have set a £10 minimum sponsorship to take part. part. Participants can choose to collect cash or raise sponsorship online with justgiving or Virgin Money. Please see the registration pack for more details and registration and sponsorship information.
We'd love it if wards could tell us how they'd like to spend the sponsorship money raised. Please feel free to call the Fundraising Office on 029 2184 1802 (ext 41802) to discuss ideas for charitable fund spending.
This event coincides with National Walking Month which runs through the whole of May. We're proud to be part of Cardiff Walking Festival – if you'd like to raise sponsorship by taking part in other walks that are part of the festival, please give us a call on the above number.
