Suitable for most abilities, Snowdonia Rocks promises to be a family friendly, inclusive day. You’ll take in some of the wonders of Snowdonia on this walk, which offers a chance to reflect, remember and celebrate friends and family affected by cancer and other life changing and life limiting illnesses.

All proceeds of Snowdonia Rocks will support LHS’s three grant schemes: the Get On The List programme; equipment and new facilities in North Wales and in other UK hospitals; support for cancer services across the globe, helping some of the most vulnerable families in underdeveloped countries.
