Sponsorship Fundraiser – Scotland Coast to Coast

by | Sep 8, 2013

Next weekend Friends of Ray of Hope supporter (and our son), Matt, is taking part in a two day, 105miles (169km), challenge to cross Scotland from coast to coast on foot, bike and kayak. Matt has decided to ask friends if they would make a small sponsorship for the challenge, with donations to Friends of Ray of Hope.

If you would like to sponsor, please click the ‘Donate’ button to make a sponsorship gift. Thank you very much.

Day one is 57 miles starting in Nairn, near Inverness. The route is; a seven mile cross country run, a 48 mile road cycle, a two mile kayak across Loch Ness and a short run to the half-way line at Fort Augustus.

Day two covers 48 miles starting with a 33 mile cycle (16 miles of which is off-road) towards Ben Nevis, then a 14 mile run mostly cross country, before a one mile kayak across Loch Leven, past the Isles of Glencoe, ending in Glencoe.

Matt has asked friends and colleagues:

“My mum and step dad help run a small charity that funds a little school in the Kampala slums in Uganda. It gives the kids the chance of an education and a daily meal too.

I would like to try and raise a little bit of sponsorship for the charity ‘Friends of Ray of Hope’. Even just ¬£2 would give a meal to a child for a couple of days or more.
