World Kidney Day 2018












March 8th, World Kidney Day was marked by the Cardiff Centre of WKRU. We had static bicycles in the concourse of the University Hospital Wales for a virtual cycle ride between the dialysis centre in Aberystwyth and that in Cardiff. That was a 200 km target, cycled by WKRU members, patients and members of the public.


 We teamed up with Kidney Wales to draw attention to the need for a “Healthy Lifestyle for Healthy Kidneys”.





Thank you to everyone who participated and helped us reach our target!!!

Just over 200 km were covered under 4 hours. 






 The event raised money for Kidney Wales and for Kidney Research UK

The event was also broadcast and commented on twitter @WKRU

At 1.15pm, the people in the concourse witnessed an unusual event as some people in the purple Kidney Research UK iconic top started dancing for a flashmob!
