The Kiltwalk
The Kiltwalk is fast becoming Scotland's most loved way of raising money for children's charities. We organise sponsored walking events across Scotland for all abilities and ages with 26 mile, 13 mile and 10km versions. And kilts aren't even obligatory, any bit of tartan will do. Our proceeds support some of Scotland's leading children's charities including Aberlour Children's Charity, Cash for Kids, CHAS, Children 1st, CLIC Sargent and many other children's causes throught Scotland!

Hi friends! Thanks for visiting my page. I will be taking part in the 23 mile Kiltwalk in order to raise funds for SiMBA in memory of my cousins beautiful girl Madelyn Jess Gordon, who was and always will be in all our hearts. SIMBA are a tremendous charity who support families during one of the hardest times they will ever facet. UPDATE 3/5/17: I DID IT!!! I manage the Kiltwalk in 8 hours! 23 miles is a slog! Miles 17/18/19 were a struggle but the wee butterfly flying past me at mile 18 really perKed me up! Very symbolic for SiMBA and Madelyn. Thank you so much for the donations and for following my journey! Hugely appreciated. UPDATE 28/4/17- so, the kilt walk is now just two sleeps away and I am feeling SO ready! I'm so overwhelmed with the support from my friends, family and perfect strangers! The money raised will make a huge difference to SiMBA so every penny counts! All your messages have kept me motivated and made this all a lot easier! Look out for my updates on Sunday! Thanks friends xxxx UPDATE 20/3/17: managed a 25 mile walk yesterday so  feeling very ready for the walk! I've raised more than I thought I could as you have all been so kind! I've upped my target and really hope to reach this. The work of SiMBA is so important, so please continue to donate if you can. Thanks so much for the donations so far! Bring on the Kiltwalk! Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
