White Ribbon Scotland thank 30 Mile Challenge participants!

White Ribbon Scotland held an event to thank all those who contributed to the very successful 30 Mile Challenge fundraising walk.

Months of planning, training and fundraising culminated in a great day out which raised over £3,500 for White Ribbon Scotland. This could not have happened without all those who played their part whether by walking, donating, supporting the walkers on the day and also all our supporters and partners who helped promote the event. We formally thank all of you who put in their time, and were able to thank some of you in person at our prize-giving celebration event last week.

Whilst it was a fun event with everyone a winner, there was an award for the fastest team - and it was close! Finishing in the quickest time, just 3 minutes ahead of 'Dunky's Doughnuts' in second place, was 'Ayrshire Boys' - well done on posting such a remarkable time!

Everyone who took part were presented with a medal and certificate of appreciation for their efforts. Every penny donated was greatly appreciated, as were the fundraising efforts of all involved. We had always intended to award the individual who raised most funds, and were astounded with the winner's contribution. Michael McGraw raised over £500 and truly deserved to take home the award of Best Fundraiser. Thanks to Mike and to everyone who donated to his truly inspirational effort!

Michael McGraw receives his well-deserved award for his massive contribution to the total funds raised. Excellent work Mike, please pass on our thanks to each and every one of your many donors!

 
 
 
 

Thanks also to our Stewards and Marshalls who volunteered their time as members of the Support Team - we couldn't have done it without you! Medals and certificates were presented by Callum from White Ribbon Scotland and Scott McMillan of Police Scotland, who received special commendation for his key role in organising the event (whilst still finding time to participate!).

  

White Ribbon Scotland is forever grateful for all the time and effort volunteered by everyone who took part. Best of luck in future to all involved, and thank you for enabling White Ribbon Scotland to continue to develop our work in tackling violence against women - our strength is in our supporters as they continue to raise the profile of the campaign work we do and to remain true to the White Ribbon pledge.
