The Ponty Plod on Sunday July 14th 2019 starting at 11am is the answer!
This family friendly, dog friendly walk takes place in Ynysangharad Park. The route is 5K. There will be an 80's theme, music, and an after walk party. All adult walkers will also receive a Macmillan Tote Bag (sponsored by Egan Waste) and all those adults who complete the walk will receive a Macmillan medal (see photos).
This year we will be using JustGiving in order to register places for the walk.
What we need from you:
£10 - this is the cost for walk entry for over 12s. Under 12 are free. Under 12s can be registered in advance by email at email@example.com or can be registered on the day.
JustGiving are required to take 5% from all donations in order to cover platform costs. If you are given the option to cover this cost then we would be very grateful. (5% of £10 is just 50p) You may be asked to do this when you submit your donation.

How will your entry to The Ponty Plod make a difference?
One of the biggest challenges for anyone is to carry on with life after a
diagnosis of cancer. Macmillan Cancer Support is committed to helping everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can by providing physical, emotional and financial support.
When a cure is not possible Macmillan strives to give every possible support throughout the period of palliative care. A state of the art specialist palliative care unit is currently being built in the grounds of the Royal Glamorgan Hospital. Macmillan has provided £5 million of the £7+million required for this much needed service.
With the theme of 'bringing the outside in' the amazing artwork that has been commissioned will provide a tranquil but uplifting environment. Eight single rooms will open up to allow beds to be pushed out onto a private outside space where terminally ill patients may spend time with their family and friends.
Spacious day care facilities and therapy/consulting rooms will make it easier for staff to continue with the superb care that is currently offered in the 100 year old building in Pontypridd.
