Medics on the March Party

  • Posted on Apr 5, 2018

To help commemorate the Brittle Bone Society’s 50th anniversary and celebrate Wishbone Day, a group of determined NHS medics are taking on the mother of all Scottish challenges this May – walking the West Highland Way in 4 days! Medics include our very own Trustee of the charity –  renowned Professor Faisal Ahmed of The Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow along with some other hardy NHS healthcare professional pals.

The medics will start the walk on Friday 4th May and young Cameron Allan of Appin Argyll will be at the start line to cheer them on. Cameron has also been fundraising for the Brittle Bone Society’s 50th, by undertaking ’50 wheelchair walks’ across Scotland – find out more here.

The West Highland Way stretches 96 miles (154 Km) from Milngavie to Fort William, taking in a huge variety of scenery along the way, from countryside parks to loch-shores and open moorlands to steep mountains. Normally the route is completed from south to north but the medics will be walking from Fort William to Milngavie.

Join our party

To mark the end of this fantastic challenge, we are throwing a party for the Medics on the March at Milngavie Town Hall on Monday 7 May. We would love as many people as possible to join this celebration and give our medics the praise they deserve.

If you would like to come along, please RSVP to bbs@brittlebone.org or call us on 01382 20446.
