Pedalling across Scotland to raise funds for Katie’s Trust

posted in: DIPG, Events, Fundraising, News

Cammie cycled the 47 miles from Glasgow Green to Murrayfield last weekend in a fantastic time of 4 hours. It’s even more impressive when you realise he had his dad drafting in his slipstream all the way!!!! Cammie used the cycle to raise £460 for Katie’s Trust – a huge amount by any standards!  Here is Cammie in action –In the lead! Finished!






Thanks very much from Auntie Ann and Uncle Andrew.
