Community and Sport Events

Prostate Cymru receives no national or government funding and relies on the kindness and generosity of its fundraisers and volunteers to fulfil its key objectives. The charity annual fundraising events include challenges such as The Big Walk and The Big Cycle and community events such as The Big Breakfast.

The Big Walk was established in 2014 and is Wales’ longest and most challenging group charity walk. The walk has two routes which start at the iconic Principality Stadium, Cardiff. The short route is 13 miles to The Duke of Wellington, Cowbridge and the long route is 29 miles to Kenfig Hill RFC, Bridgend. The popular family friendly event has grown every year with celebrities including Max Boyce MBE, Sam Warburton OBE, Sir Gareth Edwards CBE, and Warren Gatland OBE starting the walk.

The Big Cycle is Wales’ premiere sportive which was launched in 2013. A must for all cycling enthusiasts, the sportive tests endurance with the options of 54 and 72 mile routes through breathtaking scenery of the South Wales valleys.

The Big Breakfast launched in 2017 is an event where supporters are encouraged to host a breakfast event, either at their home or in the workplace. Whether you are a cereal lover or enjoy a full cooked breakfast, the Big Breakfast is a fun, social event that you can hold on any day in November.

Prostate Cymru also supports those who take part in marathons, triathlons and sporting events. The charity regularly enters a team for Cardiff Half Marathon, the second largest road race in the UK. The 13.1 mile route takes runners past the capital’s most iconic landmarks with beautiful scenery and historic buildings.

Prostate Cymru is also the nominated Welsh charity for multiple community events including the Rotary Ride Father’s Day Bike Ride. Rotary clubs across the UK are encouraged to get on their bikes on the Father’s Day weekend to raise funds and awareness of prostate cancer amongst male members.
