Walking to Save Lives.

Walking for charity is an easy option for lots of people to raise money for charity, with walks set up all over the UK. After seeing lots of posts about walks such as the Kilt Walk, or marathons such as Race for Life, I noticed one being advertised to raise money for The Aberdeen Mountain Rescue Team.

This one is right up my street. Not only was it raising money for something that really puts every penny to use, but they are the rescue team based in the area I grew up. AMRT save lives daily and are on call 24/7, 365 days of the year. They are often on call to help out the Police on rescue missions, and they were even called out to help in the Floods that severely impacted Aberdeen/shire last year. They also put lots of their funding towards extensive training for their team members, so they really can be the best mountain rescue team they can be.
Everyone who helps out in the team are volunteers, with normal day jobs every other day. The one thing they all share is that they all have a passion for the mountains and outdoors and want to help people.

The sponsored walk is about 15 miles, that starts at the Linn of Dee, follows the river Lui, and ends at Marr Lodge. It will offer some fantastic views of the area, and mountains. It will really put my training to the test, and it will also offer me more training for the Speyside Way in July.
I'm also dragging my fiance (willingly) with me. He is also doing the Speyside Way with me in July.

So if you would like to sponsor me and my other half, click the link Here. and be sure to check out the sponsored walk.

Until Next time,
