The LifeCycle (Malta) Foundation will this year be organising the fourth edition of LifeWalk on 24-29 May to raise funds in aid of its initiatives towards renal patients, to support medical research and raise awareness on renal disease.
LifeWalk is a 145-kilometre trekking challenge along Hadrian’s Wall in the UK that was held for the first time in 2021. Although it was initially conceived after the COVID-19 pandemic stalled the annual LifeCycle Challenge, LifeWalk has since gained popularity among individuals who are not fervent cyclists but wish to take part in a resilience challenge while raising funds for a worthy cause.
Alan Curry, founder of the LifeCycle (Malta) Foundation, commented: “LifeWalk passes through some of the most beautiful parts of England. LifeWalkers are expected to cover up to 36 kilometres daily, surrounded by amazing natural landscapes and historic fortifications. It is a challenge that demands endurance, yet rewards with profound satisfaction. We are therefore inviting people to join us in this meaningful initiative.”
The LifeCycle (Malta) Foundation has raised over Eur3.2 million since it was founded in 1999. It is the only voluntary organisation that raises funds to support renal patients in Malta and Gozo, and constantly collaborates with Mater Dei Hospital’s Renal Unit and the University of Malta’s kidney disease awareness team within the University’s Research Trust (RIDT).
