Taking part in the Rhondda Walk gives you the opportunity to walk alone, with friends, work colleagues or even with your dog, whoever you chose to walk with you help make  a massive difference to improve the lives of those affected by cancer”.

Nicola Newhams, Macmillan Fundraising Manager added,

“Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face and the feelings of loneliness and isolation that so many people experience make it even harder.

Now, more than ever, we need people like the amazing supporters who take part in the Rhondda Walk to get involved. Through, their support we are able to continue the services Macmillan can provide in South Wales; Macmillan aims to reach everyone affected by cancer and through their donations and sponsorship we are a step closer to achieving our goal”.
