Birthday Present for Charities as Caledonian Challenge Celebrates 20 Years

09 November 2015

To celebrate its 20th year in 2016, the Caledonian Challenge is launching its Third Sector Bond Scheme (TSBS).  This new scheme invites a limited number of  charities, social enterprises or community organisations to sign teams up to participate in either THE 54 or THE 24 on the weekend of the 11th and 12th June 2016 and raise money for their own causes.

The TSBS is aimed at all charities, social enterprises or community organisations no matter their size.  Foundation Scotland believes that the new scheme will help charities build newrelationships with supporters whilst bringing in new income – without having to create their own tailor-made event.

The Caledonian Challenge is Scotland’s premier outdoor fundraising event and raises funds for Foundation Scotland. Since the first event in 1996, over 18,000 participants have raised more than £14M to support charities and communityorganisations across Scotland. 

Participants can choose to attempt either the 54 mile route in 24 hours (THE 54) or the 24 mile route in under 12 hours (THE 24).  The Caledonian Challenge weekend sees participants passing stunning Scottish icons, the Great Glen Way, the majestic sight of Ben Nevis then continuing their journey down the West Highland Way talking on the Devil’s Staircase and Rannoch Moor before crossing the finish line at Strathfillan, south of Tyndrum.  A trulyunforgettable experience to share with friends, colleagues and family!

Giles Ruck CEO Foundation Scotland said “What better way to celebrate the 20th year of the Caledonian Challenge, but to extend its legacy.  By giving charitable organisations theopportunity to enter teams and raise money for their causes not only will it help us at Foundation Scotland extend our charitable outreach but we hope it will encourage more people to participate in the event.

“There are a limited number of Third Sector Bond places available and we would encourage charities to get in touch as soon as possible to guarantee their place.

“We want as many walkers as possible to join us on the starting line on the 11th June to help celebrate this milestone, create wonderful memories and make your miles matter.”
