Medics on the March

  • Posted on May 10, 2018

To help commemorate the Brittle Bone Society’s 50th anniversary and celebrate Wishbone Day, a group of determined NHS medics took on the mother of all Scottish challenges in May – walking the West Highland Way in 4 days! Medics included 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 began their 96-mile walk on Friday 4th May from Fort William. Cameron Allan of Appin Argyll also joined the medics for a short while, adding to his collection of ’50 wheelchair walks’ across Scotland for the BBS – 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.

The medics have so far raised a whopping £5,800 for the Brittle Bone Society! To donate please visit https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/bbs/walkswheelswanders?platform=hootsuite
