After raising a staggering £72,000 in 2022, Velindre’s annual Wear Red campaign returns on Friday 3rd February 2023. Now more than ever, we need your help in painting Wales RED!
With cancer now affecting 1 in 2 people in Wales, and the COVID pandemic still placing strain on our cancer services, we need to raise more money to help more cancer patients and families.
Every penny raised from our Wear Red Campaign is invested back into Velindre Cancer Centre to fund a range of services, roles and resources that have a significant impact on the experience and treatment journey of our patients and their families.
Make a BIG difference with a small donation.
Supporting Velindre Cancer Centre has never been easier! Simply Wear Red and donate £1 to Velindre on Friday 3rd February to show your support for Wales’ Premier Rugby Teams and Wales’ Premier Cancer Centre.

NEW for 2023!

As well as the CrossFit challenge, there will also be a circuits style challenge available in intermediate and advanced, so anybody can get involved, anytime, anywhere! The CrossFit work out has been designed by Velindre Charity Ambassador Gareth Way and the team at Sugar Rogue CrossFit Centre in Cwmbran and the other workouts have been designed by long-time supporter Sarah Draper of Inspire Fitness in Merthyr.
