My story

[p]Why are we fundraising?[/p][p]Dai Hobbs is a pillar of the Rhiwbina Rugby Club and wider community who puts his energy and passion into everything he does. Dai has worked tirelessly for many years to ensure the people of Rhiwbina and wider community have the chance to participate in sport and reap the benefits of coming together in social gatherings. The importance of which is now fully understood because it is something that everyone is missing during the pandemic.[/p][p]Since breaking the news of his diagnosis of pancreatic cancer Dai has taken on the challenge the only way he knows how, with positivity, energy and selflessness. During this difficult time Dai is putting others first and is looking to raise much needed funds for two fantastic charities.[/p][p]Who are we fundraising for?[/p][p]Velindre Cancer Centre provides specialist cancer services to over 1.5 million people in South East Wales and beyond. More and more people are diagnosed with Cancer and Velindre Cancer Centre ensure that these people receive the best possible medical care to enhance their quality of life.[/p][p]The City Hospice work closely with Velindre and patients to make sure people have the care they require where they want it. The City Hospice offers much needed care and support to patients and their families whilst receiving palliative care across Cardiff. [/p][p]What are we doing?[/p][p]January saw over 250 past and present rugby players each run a 100km in support of Dai to help give him the much needed energy to fight his fight. In doing so the 100KforHobbsy campaign helped raise a huge amount of money for two other charities that were important to Dai. Following the success of January, the 100KforHobbsy campaign will now support the City Hospice and Velindre Cancer centre throughout February at the request Dai himself. [/p][p]To raise money for these charities during February the 100KforHobbsy runners will continue to pound the pavement and are aiming to collectively run around the world. A total of 40,075km! This will be a huge challenge but for someone who means the world to us, running around the world for him is the least we can do.[/p][p]To help achieve this collective goal, during the month of February, the Mini and Juniors of Rhiwbina RFC will also take on the challenge of running a K (kilometre) A Day. Every kilometre these kids run will contribute to the bigger goal of running around the world.[/p][p]This will be a monumental effort by so many and is something that continues to give Dai Hobbs the strength he needs during his treatment. [/p][p]We hope you will see the worth of this great campaign and kindly donate to support these two important charities.[/p][p]Thank you[/p]
