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.
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.
The community wanted to do something to say thankyou to Dai.
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 charity. Following the success of January, the 100KforHobbsy campaign will now support charities throughout February as well.
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!
