As part of our 10th Anniversary celebrations, we will have a significant presence at this year’s Edinburgh Kiltwalk, taking place on Sunday 18th September.  Geckotech Solutions is sponsoring the ‘Goodie Bag’ tent, which will be situated alongside registration – and we will also be hitting the road in big numbers, with ‘Team Gecko’ committed to the Mighty Stride option of 26 miles.

‘Team Gecko’ has an ambitious but wholly achievable fundraising target of £10,000 in aid of the STV Children’s Appeal.  If you would like to sponsor us, please click on http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/gecko

With so many fundraising events taking place throughout the year, there is undeniably an increasing number of ‘asks’ for sponsorship.   We would be delighted if you would consider helping us achieve our target; all donations, large or small, would be so very much appreciated.  100% of whatever we raise will be donated to the STV Children’s Appeal where it will be redistributed across hundreds of projects that help Scotland’s most vulnerable children throughout the country.

The Mighty Stride will take us through our beautiful capital city, passing through Gypsy Brae, Granton Harbour and Victoria Park, crossing the cobbles of Leith to then along Edinburgh’s lovely Promenade. Then it’s back inland heading for Arthur’s Seat, and a glance at the Palace before hitting the home stretch to enjoy the final celebrations.

To quote the Kiltwalk website:

There are too many children on our doorstep in Scotland living with poverty and illness. For a country of our size and achievements, this simply shouldn’t be the case – but together we can make a difference. We won’t give up until every child receives the support they deserve.

Every year our walkers unite to raise funds and pay tribute to the many amazing and brave children who have touched their lives. Some walk to remember the courageous children who were taken too soon, some walk for the children who are fighting serious illness, and others walk to change lives of children in Scotland who are in most need of our help, whoever they may be.”

Taking part in this event will give us an unforgettable opportunity to support a very worthwhile cause, contributing to communities across the length and breadth of the country; whilst getting ourselves in shape for the next decade!
