Our Walk to Remember 2020 may have been virtual but our supporters came together in spirit to make it a truly special event with their family and friends! Here are some of the people who have made it such a success, walking, cycling and running for St Columba’s.

Johanna McAleese

Johanna had great weather and a great walk in memory of her sister. We love the bunting Johanna!

Dave King

Dave cycled 60 miles from Edinburgh to North Berwick taking in lovely scenery across East Lothian and a well deserved cuppa in bonny East Saltoun

Jillian Adie

Jillian completed 26.2 miles over 26 days with her dog Tara, who has cancer. They had a great time exploring a new place each day together.

The Wishart's had a great day doing their Walk and although there were a few sore feet on Monday, they were delighted with their fundraising total.

Maggie Ritchie and family

Maggie and her family enjoyed their Walk to Remember together in Holyrood Park, with their route taking them around the park and Arthurs Seat.

Laura and Lisa

Laura & Lisa walked along the Forth and Clyde Canal outside of Glasgow, wearing Hospice T-shirts to complete their challenge. Laura's pug Douglas joined them!

Douglas, the pug

Douglas gets a special mention - after completing his Walk to Remember, Douglas sported his own tee. Looking very dapper!

Aileen Ferguson

What a great way to end her challenge - after cycling 80 miles for the Hospice, Aileen went for a celebratory swim in the reservoir!

Craig and Harriet Marshall

Craig and Harriet were on Skye when their family took part in the Walk on the last day of July but they wore their Hospice t-shirts and actually walked more miles!

Bill, centre, walked 6.5 miles throughout July in memory of his wife. He was joined by his family to do the last quarter mile altogether.

Lesley Hay

Lesley Hay enjoyed glorious weather and beautiful scenery during her marathon walk over the Pentland Hills.
