Take strides for tiny hearts
We are delighted to now be registered as a charity with The Kiltwalk!
The Kiltwalk is one of Scotland’s biggest annual fundraisers, attracting 20,000 walkers last year. There are four locations and three distances to choose from – the five-mile Wee Wander, 15.5-mile Big Stroll and 24-mile Mighty Stride – and the Hunter Foundation boosts all fundraising totals by a huge 40 per cent. Whether you take on the Mighty Stride, Big Stroll or Wee Wander, your fundraising will make a positive difference in the lives of babies born with a serious heart condition and their families.
Paul Cooney, CEO of The Kiltwalk says; “Thanks to over 20,000 walkers who joined us on a Kiltwalk in 2018, over £3.6 millon made it’s way to 1156 charities in Scotland and with the £1.46 million top up from the Hunter Foundation, we are proud to say that over £5million was distributed in 2018. From everyone at The Hunter Foundation and The Kiltwalk, we would like to wish you every success in 2019.”
There are nearly 60,000 births in Scotland every year, of which around 550 babies will have a heart condition, and over 100 of these newborns, will leave maternity units with nobody realising that they have a potentially life threatening heart condition. So join us and take some big strides for tiny hearts – with your help, mile by mile, we can make a big impact, and support more babies to have a better start in life.
