A spokeswoman said: ‘The kidney-shaped route will take us around the UK, covering 2,500 miles taking us over all types of terrain. We will visit transplant centres for both mainstream and children’s hospitals as well as other locations to raise money while spreading the name and work of Kidney Research UK and Kids Kidney Research.
