CELTIC goalkeeper Craig Gordon was at Lennoxtown today to promote Celtic FC Foundation teaming up with children’s charity The Kiltwalk for a 26-mile trek around Glasgow to raise money for children and young people.
The Kiltwalk, a charity which organises sponsored, kilted walks to raise funds for children’s charities across Scotland, are giving supporters the opportunity to don their Celtic tartan and raise money for Celtic FC Foundation’s projects with children and young people.
The event will take place on Sunday, April 12 with walkers departing from Hampden Park before embarking on an inspiring 26-mile tour of Glasgow and finishing in the idyllic surroundings of Balloch Castle Country Park.
If a 26-mile walk seems too daunting, participants can also opt for a 13-mile half-walk or a 10k “Wee Walk” which is ideal for the whole family.
Celtic FC Foundation will receive a Kiltwalk Grant for 75% of the monies you raise (subject to there being a minimum of 20 team members) with the other 25% going to The Kiltwalk’s main beneficiary charities.*
Celtic FC Foundation CEO, Tony Hamilton said: “The Kiltwalk represents a fantastic opportunity to support Celtic FC Foundation’s work with children and young people and I wish all our participants the very best of luck with this challenge.”
“This is just one of a number of initiatives we have for 2015. Our aim is to do more this year than we have ever done in the past and we are looking forward to this and what I hope will be the start of a long relationship with The Kiltwalk.”
