Team EDCH Step Up for the Kiltwalk


Around 3000 people laced up their walking shoes and donned some tartan yesterday, 17th September, to take part in Edinburgh’s fifth annual Kiltwalk event.

For the first year, the Kiltwalk opened entries to all Scottish charities and a 10-strong team took on the Mighty Stride (26 miles) and Big Stroll (12 miles) to raise funds for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.

It is estimated that a total of over £2 million will be paid out to Scottish charities following on from the four Kiltwalk events throughout the country in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen.

Our team raised well over £1000 and thanks to the generosity of Sir Tom Hunter and the Hunter Foundation, we will receive an additional 40% on top of all funds raised.

The team at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home would like to say a massive thank you to all 10 of the walkers who stepped up to raise vital funds to support the Home’s mission to rescue, rehome and reunite Edinburgh and the Lothians’ lost, stray and abandoned dogs and cats.
