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 2017 Walk The Wye event will be the ninth 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 2016 walk was a great success with over 350 walkers taking part, and raising £13,487 for charity. In total, the previous 8 Rotary walks have raised over £79,000 for breast cancer research and we hope to significantly increase that total in 2017.
