KILTWALK 2021

When & where

  • Friday 23- Saturday 25 April
  • Virtual event

Overview

Members – we challenge you to Kiltwalk!

As a charity covering all of the Borders we want to do our part to help people across the Scottish Borders recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. We pledge that all money raised from Kiltwalk will go to support those in need across the Borders personally become healthier, happier and stronger. 

As we plan our reopening of facilities, we are also hard at work pulling together ways in which we can directly support those people and families in need; those affected by ill health, disability, poverty, and those for whom the pandemic has come with added struggles, and Kiltwalk funds raised by you, our valued members, will go directly to that cause. 

You are our greatest asset, and we need your support.

Kiltwalk is a great fundraising opportunity for us as all sponsorship gathered by our supporters (that’s you!) is automatically topped up by 50% by Sir Tom Hunter and the Hunter Foundation! For every £100 you raise, we get £150!

The Virtual Kiltwalk is a simple concept – create your own challenge to complete sometime over 23-25 April – do this alone, as a team, or get the family involved, and collect sponsorship via a Just Giving page. Tartan is heavily encouraged, although not mandatory!

As a Kiltwalker you are fully supported on your journey by the Kiltwalk team and me, Kirsty, your Live Borders Charity Fundraising Officer.
