Cardiff Met Announced As Kidney Wales 10K Sponsorship Partner

​27/04/2018

The University has been unveiled as an official sponsorship partner of Kidney Wales' upcoming Nation Radio Cardiff 10K.

This is the latest in a string of collaborations between Cardiff Met and Kidney Wales, with previous activities including a fundraising internship being made available to students interested in pursuing a career in the third sector.

The run is set to take place on 2nd September and will raise funds for the estimated 10,000 people suffering from the effects of kidney disease across Wales.

Starting in Cathays Park, the run will take in some of Cardiff's major landmarks, including Cardiff Castle and the Principality Stadium.

An agreement has also been put in place that will see the Cardiff Met logo displayed on the back of each of the 10K and 2K runners' t-shirts, a symbol of the proximity of the relationship between the two organisations.

On the news that the University would be sponsoring the Nation Radio Cardiff 10K, Acting Director of Sport Owen Rodgers said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for the University to grow a partnership with Kidney Wales – good luck to everyone taking part in the 10k and 2K races".

Kidney Wales Director Nick Clarke said: "The Nation Radio Cardiff 10K is one of the most important activities in our fundraising calendar and the event sponsorship money will play a valuable role in the work undertaken by the charity.

"All money raised by the event goes a long way to supporting our activities - just £105 could help a young patient and their family attend a social event organised by Kidney Wales to give them a day of normality, whilst £625 could help fund a social worker at the Children's Kidney Centre to give comfort and support to families as they learn to live and cope with their diagnosis."
