Opera star Katherine Jenkins is to take part in a fun run for charity in Wales.
The singer is patron of Kidney Wales and will run in this year’s HSBC Cardiff 10K starting at the SWALEC Stadium on September 6.
The event will raise money for children affected by kidney cancer and renal failure at the Kidney Wales Children’s Unit in Cardiff.
“I’m so excited about taking part in this year’s HSBC Cardiff 10K,” she said. "It was wonderful starting last year’s event and I decided then that I really wanted to take part in the next one. The Kidney Wales Foundation is a charity that is so close to my heart and this year’s HSBC Cardiff 10K is the most important ever.
“The 10K is great for runners young and old, and being a fast and flat course means that you don’t have to be super fit to take part. The 2K Run gives children and families the chance to take part too, and help the many children across Wales who need Kidney Wales’ support.”
