A BIG thank you to all you Kiltwalkers!

Written by 

Thank you so much to everyone who put their trainers on and walked either 5 miles, 13 miles or 26 miles for Calums Cabin at any of this year's Kiltwalks.

Your support means so much to us and all of our visiting families. 2018 was our BIGGEST EVER Kiltwalk with 474 walkers taking part in the four walks, with over 400 walkers in Glasgow alone.  We also hosted our first ever Dundee Pit stop which was fantastic.  Thank you to all our volunteers, entertainers and supporters who came along to make both Glasgow and Dundee pit stops extra fun for all the walkers!

This year, you fantastic Kiltwalkers raised a whopping £144,509.72 which was kindly boosted by a fabulous 40% from Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation adding an extra £57,668.63 meaning Calums Cabin received...

£202,178.35

Wow.  Wow.  Wow.

This year the funds raised were specifically used to purchase another flat in Glasgow.  This new "home from home" will provide free accommodation to families who have a child suffering from cancer.  These families are travelling to Glasgow for long term intensive treatment at Glasgow Children's Hospital and The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre.

How incredible that all of your Kiltwalk fundraising will go towards helping even more families who have a child suffering from cancer and cancer related illnesses.  Without your support, we wouldn't be able to give families the chance to create special memories and spend quality time together when they need to most.

 

Here at Calums Cabin, we are really excited for all the Kiltwalk events of 2019 and apparently you are too!

We have already had our first teams of 2019 sign up so it's never too early to register your place. There is a walk to suit everyone as you can choose from 3 distances depending on the location: The Wee Wander (5 miles approx) The Big Stroll (15 miles approx) or The Mighty Stride (26 miles approx).

 

Why not sign up today and choose Calums Cabin as your chosen charity to help raise funds to provide holiday accommodation for families who have a child with cancer.
