25th April was a beautiful spring day when Cenzo Main, Pete Anderson, Dave Cameron and John Carney completed 13.7 miles for their half marathon Kiltwalk. The route was close to the lower reaches of the River Spey, near to the Carneys home village of Garmouth. A truly beautiful part of the world and a great day was had by all.
The photos show: Pete and Dave after receiving their shuka sashes. This is the highest walking accolade bestowed by Busega Scotland! The about halfway tea break. Drinks at the finish, followed by pizza and apricot cake prepared by Christine Carney (now you know what the motivation was!). And finally, John with his cherished Kiltwalk medal!
Many, many thanks go to all who contributed to the magnificent sponsorship of £3360. When the Hunter Foundation added their 50% contribution of £1679 (a unique feature of the Kiltwalk) the total reached £5039. Absolutely fantastic!
Overall, the Kiltwalk raised £6,105,000 for 1015 Scottish charities. The really beautiful characteristic of the Hunter Foundation’s support is that their support goes to charities ordinary people care about and is not philanthropy directed to the preferred good causes of the rich and influential. The Kiltwalk is grassroots.
