It funds their work, helping them in the pursuit of a cure; making great discoveries in the areas of early diagnosis, better treatments and preventatives of cancer for the benefit of cancer patients globally.

As well as focusing on site-specific cancers the Cancer Research Wales research portfolio is rich in studies that seek to better understand the fundamental processes of cancer biology that are common to all cancers, such as uncontrolled cell growth, invasion and spread, resistance to chemo- and radiotherapies and immune evasion.

Family Footsteps 

Your Future Inn Cardiff is bright with Family Footsteps


Future Inn Cardiff will be the final stop of the Family Footsteps walking event, organised by Cancer Research Wales. It is taking place on Sunday 13th October 2019 in Cardiff Bay.  

The family fun event is a 6km walk around Cardiff Bay, sponsored by Western Power Distribution.  It will allow you to take in the sights, enjoy the fresh air and spend time with your family.  Along the way, there will be entertainment including face-painting and a balloon artist.  The team at Costco will even be providing a halfway refreshment stand so you can rehydrate and grab a quick snack before completing the walk.

The route is suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs and is dog-friendly and will be guided by JT Expeditions.  Future Inn Cardiff is the last stop on the route, where there will be a celebratory cup of tea, coffee or soft drinks in Thomas Bar & Restaurant.  Those with a Family Footsteps t-shirt will also get 10% off Sunday Lunch, who wouldn't want crispy roast potatoes, giant Yorkshire puddings and a rich gravy after a long walk?
