Hiking Scotland for Cystic Fibrosis

£1,030 of £2,500 goal

Raised by 58 people in 9 months
Created February 24, 2018
In the summer of 2018, I will be hiking the Scottish National Trail- the length of Scotland.

The SNT begins in Kirk Yetholm at the Scottish border and ends in Cape Wrath. The 864 kilometre hike progressively gets more difficult, joining the Cape Wrath Trail (one of the most challenging hikes in the UK) which requires multiple days of wild camping in the Scottish Highlands. I estimate the SNT will take me 5 weeks to complete. 

One of my goals for this hike is to raise money for a cause close to my heart, Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

My goddaughter, Olivia (5) was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was born. CF is known as the hidden disease and is the most common life threatening genetic disorder affecting New Zealand children.

There is no cure for CF, but the gene that causes cystic fibrosis has been identified and researchers are working to find ways to repair or replace it, and medications to treat CF complications.

Half of the funds raised will go towards Olivia's treatment costs (estimated at $2600NZD/1400 pounds). The remaining half will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to care for families living with CF.

How you can help me on my journey:

-offering me your backyard to pitch my tent, or a couch to sleep on
-lending me hiking gear (currently I am in search of a one person tent, GPS, cooking gear and a sleeping bag)
-inviting me around for dinner (I have some great stories to share!)
