Donning our brightest yellow and blue tartan, the Enable Magazine team is participating in this year’s Virtual KiltWalk to raise money for Doddie Weir’s charity, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and helping to build awareness of motor neurone disease.
From 23 to 25 April (or all in one day for the adventurous members of the team), each member will be walking a total of 26 miles across Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
That’s a total of 104 miles combined! And it’s all for a great cause.
FUNDING FOR CURE
We are raising money for My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, a charity working to raise funds to help facilitate further research to help find a cure for motor neurone disease.
The charity’s founder, one of rugby’s most recognisable and respected figures, Doddie Weir has graced the pages of Enable Magazine on several occasions sharing the ground-breaking steps forward the foundation has been making.
Although the KiltWalk will look different this year, and members of the team will be walking independently – to comply with current coronavirus restrictions in Scotland – that doesn’t mean we can’t put our best foot forward to raise vital funds for a fantastic cause.
Last year, the KiltWalk raised over £5m which went out to over 900 charities – an extraordinary figure in a time of great need for charities across Scotland.
HIT THE HILLS
The Enable team is excited to get involved this year, and some of the team are already packing their blister packs.
Sales director, Marian and editor, Lorne previously completed the Glasgow KiltWalk in 2019 raising funds for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), and designer, Lucy fundraising for Glasgow Children’s Hospital; there was certainly some sore feet the next day!
For those able to, it would mean a lot if you can donate what you can to our fundraising page to help people across Scotland living with motor neurone disease.
