High profile community events

Prostate Cymru has no national or government funding and relies on the kindness and generosity of its fundraisers and volunteers to fulfil its core aims. The charity has annual fundraising events including sports challenges such as The Big Walk and The Five Valleys Sportive and creative events such as The Big Breakfast.

The Big Walk was established in 2014 and is a physically and mentally challenging event involving walking 30 miles from the Principality Stadium, Cardiff to Kenfig Hill RFC, Bridgend. The Third Sector Cymru award nominated event is the longest group charity walk in Wales. The popular family friendly event has grown year on year and the walkers help each other along the route as a team with a real sense of camaraderie.

The Five Valleys Sportive is an exciting 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 and 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 works in partnership with Run 4 Wales at their high profile community 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.

In 2018, Prostate Cymru was the headline charity for the Royal Welsh Trail Running Festival in Builth Wells. This exciting event in the heart of Mid Wales kick starts the Royal Welsh season and features a 3K race, family races, a 10K race and half marathon.

Prostate Cymru is also the nominated Welsh charity for 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.
