We’re done. We’ve completed the 96 miles of the West Highland Way and achieved our objectives. Your support has been magnificent, and kept us going as legs ached, blisters formed and the midges hunted us down.
It was a fantastic experience, and one which we will remember for the rest of our lives. What started as a brief discussion at Stuart’s funeral last September became an event like no other; old friends going back half a century assembling from across the world to remember a lost Brother and to Walk the West Highland Way to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer research.
At time of writing, over £40,000 has been raised for prostate cancer research. This is an incredible sum – more than a third above our target. We really can’t thank you enough for your donations.
Will we do it, or something similar, again? Who knows, but we’ve certainly rediscovered the joy of walking in the Highlands and the cameraderie that can only come from long-standing friendships. Stuart (pictured above a few years ago at Corrie Fee) would be delighted that his love of hillwalking has been experienced by so many of his friends.
