NHS 70th Anniversary

Sunday 20 May 2018 will see a very special NHS 70 celebration in Cardiff Bay, marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS – right here in Wales, where it all started – and raising money for our local wards, departments, clinics and hospital research.

The NHS 70th Anniversary Course

Cardiff & Vale Health Charity, the official charity supporting all the work of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, has partnered with Light Up Events for a 5k run, a 10k run and a once-in-a-lifetime Bed Push Challenge!

The Bed Push Challenge is for teams of 4-5 people to push a decommissioned hospital bed as fast as they can across the Barrage and back. Teams will win prizes for fastest time, most sponsorship raised, and best-dressed bed, but there are only 10 beds available, so make sure you’re at the front of the queue to book your team on by emailing fundraising.cav@wales.nhs.uk!

The 5k and 10k runs are on the same morning. Help us celebrate the NHS at 70, our amazing NHS staff, and the patients of Rookwood Hospital who will benefit from donations made at the special event.


Event Location: Cardiff Bay, Cardiff Bay Barrage, Cardiff
