BE A KILTWALK HERO AND TAKE BIG STEPS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST MENINGITIS
Scotland is gearing up once again to host the annual Kiltwalk, where walkers are encouraged to wear their kilts and enjoy a trek through Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee or Edinburgh.
With three distances to choose from, there is a Kiltwalk for everyone and the whole family can get involved!
Walkers can choose from the six mile ‘Wee Wander’, the 15 mile ‘Big Stroll’, or tackle the ultimate ‘Mighty Stride’ and cover 23 miles!
Amanda Harris, Community Fundraiser for Meningitis Now said:
“The Kiltwalk is a challenge, but also great fun!
“We would be thrilled for people to take part in the event and choose to support Meningitis Now. All money raised will go towards vital research and supporting those who have been affected by the disease.
“It really is a great day out, so why not get together with your friends and family and help to make a difference.”
There are pit stops along the way, which are a great opportunity for walkers to re-energise, and take that all important toilet break! Water, snacks, and hot food, will be provided, and some pit stops will also feature entertainment to keep you motivated during your day!
After the walk, you can enjoy an evening in the Kiltwalk village. A free meal, live music, drinks and dancing, (if your feet are up to it!) are all available. First aiders will also be on hand to tend to any bumps and blisters you may have picked up during the day.
Choose from the following Kiltwalks:
- The Glasgow Kiltwalk 30th April 2017
- The Aberdeen Kiltwalk 4th June 2017
- Dundee Kiltwalk 20th August 2017
- Edinburgh Kiltwalk 17th September 2017
To register, simply visit the Kiltwalk website: www.thekiltwalk.co.uk
So, why not challenge yourself in 2017 – don your kilt, get walking and raise money for charity!
Meningitis Now is working towards a future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need.
It does this by funding research into vaccines and prevention, raising awareness so people know what to look for and what action to take if they suspect meningitis and rebuilding futures by providing dedicated support to people living with the impact of the disease.
