WKRU events for World Kidney Day


 To commemorate this day, we are hosting events in our centres and all are welcome to take part.

A virtual race is planned to be run at anytime during this 24 hour period. We are aiming to raise awareness of World Kidney Day and so the run must take place on this day. This is the only condition to this virtual race.and there is more information here.

We will also be setting up a static bicycle in the UHW concourse for a virtual cycle ride between the dialysis centre in Aberystwyth and that in Cardiff. Come and help us cover the 200km during the afternoon of the 8th March.

In Swansea, members of the Renal Unit are going visit St Michaels School in Llanelli with interactive displays and information on dialysis, transplantation and kidney disease.
