Grand Week Challenges
About a Grand Week in Wales
At A Grand Week in Wales, our mission is to unite communities through fundraising events, supporting key charities for the most vulnerable. We promote collaboration and positivity, making a lasting impact on those in need. Our creative 1000-themed challenges encourage participation for all ages and abilities. As we virtually traverse Wales' 1000-mile circumference, we embody the Welsh spirit while honouring our nation's rich cultural heritage.
Our Grand Week in Wales is an event to help key charities that support the most vulnerable in our communities across Wales and to bring people together through fundraising events, to combat isolation and spread positivity in a time when we need it most.
The name given is in recognition of Wales’ 1,000-mile circumference, and the event delivers a variety of community challenges based around the theme of 1000.
The main feature of a Grand Week in Wales campaign is to virtually travel the 1000-mile Welsh circumference, launching from the home of Nanny Biscuit, at the start of Wales’ Coastal Path in Deeside.
We are encouraging everyone, of all ages and abilities, to join in our grand Welsh activities throughout the month of June. We have set a number of challenges based around the number 1000 that you can participate in school and at home. We also welcome you to come up with your own challenges on this theme to help our community and fundraise.
We hope all of you can partake in a virtual relay simulating travelling around the circumference of Wales using any means available. You can run, walk, cycle, row at home on a treadmill or exercise machine, or as part of your daily outdoor exercise. #GrandWelshRelay
With a celebrity start, the first mile will be run by Great Britain’s Para Olympic Bronze medal winner in 2012 and Welsh athlete Beverly Jones.
