Welcome to Walk The Wye

P1000628Walk The Wye is an annual Rotary Club sponsored walk, along the banks of the River Wye. and  organised by the Rotary clubs of Monmouth, Chepstow and Ross on Wye. Our next Walk The Wye event will be on Sunday May 15th 2016. There will be the usual 6 walks of varying lengths to choose from along the banks of the River Wye, plus a 7th  walk which climbs to several high vantage points, giving glorious views down into the Wye Valley. All walks start and finish at Monmouth.

Choose a walk. Invite your friends to join you, and have a great day out in the beautiful Wye valley, whilst raising money for breast cancer research.

We all know somebody who has been touched by breast cancer; either directly or through a relative or friend or work colleague. Progress is being made but much more research is needed in order to find a cure for this dreadful disease. Please help us raise funds to further the research.

The 2016 Walk The Wye event will be the eighth consecutive year that it has been organised, raising money for breast cancer research, and other charities supported by the Rotary Clubs of Monmouth, Ross on Wye and Chepstow. (75% of the total raised will go to the Velindre Cancer Centre at Cardiff and 25% to other charitable causes supported by the Rotary clubs of Monmouth, Chepstow and Ross on Wye)

The 2015 walk was a great success with 331 walkers taking part, and raising £11,183 for charity. In total, the previous 7 Rotary walks have raised over £69,000 for breast cancer research and we hope to significantly increase that total in 2016.
