My story

[p][b]Why would anyone chose to; run, cycle and kayak, 105 miles, over 2 days from Nairn to Ballachulish?[/b][/p][p]Well... Anyone who knows either of us will be well aware that we both love our incredible NHS![/p][p]After, ahem some 😉 years as an NHS Physiotherapist - snap Lorna in half and you’d see “NHS” running through her middle like a stick of Blackpool rock.[/p][p]Fiona’s story is a bit more personal as she has the awesome team of superheros in NHS Lothian department of Clinical Neurology to thank for saving the lives of both her partner, Scott and her Mum, Teri. Both of them have cracking scars to compare after a combined 22 hours of tumour slaying brain surgery.[/p][p]So we; a) want to say a million thanks to everyone in the department of Clinical Neurology by raising a shed load of cash so they can fund some shiny new specialist equipment and keep on doing what they do best - saving even more lives! AND b) we just love smashing out a wee challenge together! (there may have also been a little wine involved in the signing up process).[/p][p]We are gonna have quite a few giggles riding our bikes, destroying our trainers and learning to kayak just so we can do the challenge and raise loads of cash. Oh and not forgetting... drink the well deserved champagne on ice that our support team (Scott and James) will bring us at the finish line. [/p][p]So please give whatever you can and join training runs and cheer us on for this pretty epic adventure.[/p][p]Thank you in advance.
