Giving Runs in Your Blood

 

Get set.
Give blood. 

We’re looking to inspire amateur and professional runners across the country to promote blood donation through ‘Giving Runs in Your Blood’, a campaign created alongside two of the biggest national running organisations, Welsh Athletics and Run 4 Wales.

Whether you’re a veteran at your local running club or just digging your trainers out of the back of the cupboard, get involved by following one of our heart-shaped routes and by coming along to your nearest blood donation session.

Blood donations play a vital role in saving lives each day, with donations supporting a range of treatments from helping accident victims or patients with blood cancers to helping mothers and newborn babies during childbirth.

Newport 10k race

For the first time ever, we have teamed up with Run4Wales to offer charity spots at its upcoming Newport 10k race (Sunday 24th October) in return for ‘donations with a difference’.

Five runners will be given the opportunity to tie up their laces and run in the race to help highlight the importance of lifesaving blood donations.  Find out more about how you can apply here.
