Our kiltwalking is off to a great start

The Kiltwalk has become a Scottish institution – people of all ages and levels of fitness don bits of tartan and … walk. In the process, huge amounts of money are raised. One of the important factors is that all fundraising by walkers is topped up by 50% by the Hunter Foundation; this makes a Kiltwalk a really important fundraising opportunity for us, We are all delighted that the Kiltwalk is back in person this year. It is true, however, that those with memories of sore feet might not be so joyous.

The first Kiltwalk of 2022 will be Glasgow to Balloch, with different starting points for the shorter walks. This is the first time that the Mamie Martin Fund has had more than two people in a team. Our Glasgow22 team, ably led by Kiltwalk veteran, Mariot Dallas, will include a Syrian family who are very excited to be involved in this bizarre activity.

Free kilt hire is on offer from Slanj Kilts, one of the Kiltwalk sponsors. Tunnocks is another sponsor and so we hope to see plenty of their products being given away at the pit stops.

Moira and Heidi will be the on-bike support team and will be sending a fortnightly motivational email to the team with hints and tips about training and preparation.
