The 23rd of April heralded the start of Scotland’s virtual Kiltwalk challenge ! Over the weekend, Barbara, her husband Dave, daughter Stephanie and 6 year old grandson Rafe plus Emma in Scotland embarked on various walks and in Stephanie’s case skated, yes skated their way on the 26 mile challenge!
The weather was uncharacteristically kind to all of us which is remarkable as we are spread across 3 nations, and we were able to complete our journeys within the time frame allowed. This is Rafe’s second walk for World Medicine and we are are incredibly proud of him. You’ll read all about him in our next blog which gives a fuller picture on his fundraising efforts with a lovely video introducing him.
Stephanie also deserves a special mention as her unique challenge was incredible as she hadn’t put a pair of skates on for 30 years! An amazing effort, backed up with awesome fundraising! We feared for her safety but can report that she is still in one piece and uncomplaining!
So far our team has raised over £2500 which will be bolstered by 50% thanks to the Hunter foundation. A fantastic achievement which allows us to continue our work both in the UK and abroad! Donations can be accepted until May 2nd so please support us if you can.
Well done everybody, and also thank you to all the supporters in the background who helped us with our individual challenges.
