Big Walk Video goes live

In its third year, The Big Walk 2016 was the biggest walk yet with 286 participants. Starting at the Prinicipality Stadium in Cardiff, the group walked 30 miles in 9 hours to reach the finish line at Kenfig Hill Rugby Club. The walkers received encouragement from Game Of Thrones actor Owen Teale as they set off from Cardiff for the physical and mental challenge.

Amy Foster and Paige Wilton of You Want Some Productions, a production company made up of five female Media Production graduates from the University of South Wales specialising in promotional videos and documentaries, joined the walkers on Saturday 11th June to capture the action on the day. The duo expertly shot, edited and produced the event video: https://vimeo.com/174385396

Our proud ambassador Eddie Butler kindly offered his services to narrate the video. Eddie is a familiar voice to many as the former Welsh international regularly provides rugby commentary on the BBC. Eddie has participated in a number of Prostate Cymru events such as Touching The Sun (a volcano climbing fundraising expedition) in 2013 and hosts the annual ambassadors’ lunch.

Prostate Cymru are very grateful to Amy, Paige and Eddie for creating a brilliant video that captures the spirit and team camaraderie of The Big Walk. Chris Leyshon, founder of The Big Walk and Community & Sports Officer at Prostate Cymru said: “I would like to thank Eddie Butler for narrating the video and Amy & Paige from You Want Some Productions who dedicated their time and effort into creating the film. The walkers’ attitude & companionship was unbelievable and the video captures the heart of the walk. Thank you to everyone who took part in our biggest ever The Big Walk event.”

The Big Walk 2016 is expected to exceed its previous fundraising totals with the amount raised likely to be in excess of £35,000. The sponsorship deadline for this year’s event is Saturday 23rd July. Walkers can send in their sponsorship money via post or pay it online via their JustGiving pages. The address for walkers sending their money in the post is Prostate Cymru, 56 Charles Street, Cardiff, CF10 2GG.
