Making Their Miles Matter.

16 June 2015

On June 13th over 700 people made their miles matter by completing the Foundation Scotland annual endurance

Walkers 3 event the Caledonian Challenge, completing either The 24 or The 54 mile walk along the West Highland Way from Gairlochy to Strathfillan.

Collectively the teams have raised £300,000 for Foundation Scotland, well on their way to reaching the £500,000 fundraising target. CALAmity climbers, a new team from CALA west, are this year’s top fundraisers, having raised an amazing £15,600. Team leader Karen Lowe said “We decided to do the Challenge as there would be a number of local charities that would benefit from the sponsorship we could raise.”

Over the weekend the teams were supported by 282 support crew members, the unsung heroes of the weekend, making sure the teams had dry clothes, tending to blisters, cooking up some tasty treats and providing them with moral support to help them on their way.

The weekend would not be possible without the volunteers who did an incredible job guiding and cheering on the walkers.
The walkers consumed 3500 Tunnock wafers, 1500 Nairn cookies, 1500 shortbread house biscuits, 200 Walters Shortbread biscuits and 9000 litres of water.

Fraser Lennox said “A huge congratulations to everyone who participated in this weekend’s event, made even more challenging by the wet and cold conditions. Not only have you participated in the event but you have helped raise £300,000 which we at Foundation Scotland are very grateful.”
