SSF & Scot Squad Need You!

Scot Squad stars Chris Forbes and Karen Bartke will be walking the Glasgow Kiltwalk on Sunday 29th April 2018 in aid of Scottish Sports Futures, and they want you to join them and walk for #TeamSSF!

Chris and Karen will be tackling the 15 mile ‘Big Stroll’, walking from Clydebank in Glasgow to Balloch Country Park on the shores of Loch Lomond. 

Chris said:

“As a proud ambassador for SSF, I am taking part in the Kiltwalk to help raise awareness and funds for this incredible charity. Scottish sports futures help over 10,000 disadvantaged young people every year across Scotland and I have seen first hand how they use sport to help change lives.”

Scottish Sports Futures (SSF) are offering FREE entry to anyone who walks the Glasgow Kiltwalk for #TeamSSF on Sunday, 29th April 2018. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.

The Kiltwalk is a fantastic opportunity to fundraise for SSF. The Tom Hunter Foundation will top up ALL donations by 40%. So if you raise £100, we will receive £140!

SSF have set an ambitious target of raising £20,000 from the Kiltwalk this year. This will support our work with Scotland’s most vulnerable communities and allow us to introduce inspiring role models, delivering life changing messages to an additional 1,000 young people across Scotland.

If you do not want to walk BUT do want to support us, we are also looking for volunteers to sign up as a Kiltie on the day. For every hour you volunteer, SSF will receive £1.40 for your time and support. We are also looking for volunteers to go and cheer on our walkers along the route. A t-shirt, cheer sticks and flags will be provided.

 

Glasgow too far away? Already got plans for 29th April?

Never fear, the Kiltwalk also run three other walks across Scotland throughout the year:

  • Aberdeen – Sunday 3rd June 2018
  • Dundee – Sunday 19th August 2018
  • Edinburgh – Sunday 16th September 2018
