There are around 10,000 people with renal disease in Wales and more at risk.

Ray’s Renal Ray of Sunshine Run

Lyndon and Alfie-Ray Rees from Llanelli have set themselves a challenge of running an Ultra Marathon, “Ray’s Renal Ray of Sunshine Run” in memory of Raymond Bolton a “larger than life” character that would always bring light and happiness wherever he went. A Llanelli man who doted on his family and was loved and respected by so many. Ray worked down the mines in Cynheidre as an electrician and loved nothing more than building and flying model aircrafts in his spare time. Ray made such an impact on everyone’s lives. A father figure to his niece, due to their close relationship she named her youngest son, Alfie-Ray.

As a mark of respect Alfie-Ray, aged 12, is planning on running an Ultra Marathon of 31 miles for the Renal Unit that supported Ray through his treatment. All the staff at the unit could not speak highly enough of Ray, he was so full of sunshine and laughter he made a lasting impression on everyone he met.

Ray sadly passed away in March this year and Alfie-Ray wishes to honour his memory.
