It’s time to dig out your trainers, put on your kilt and join SiMBA in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk 2019 on Sunday 2nd June. 

With three distances to choose from; suitable for families (6 miles), people looking for a challenge (15 miles) or for the very brave, take on the ultimate Kiltwalk Challenge (23 miles) 


Wee Wander – 6 miles

Perfect for adults and children even those in baby strollers / prams and pushchairs. Why not get your wee one dressed in a kilt to really make them part of the day? 

The Big Stroll (15 miles) or Ultimate Kiltwalk Challenge (23 miles)

Not only will you be able to enjoy various snacks at the pit stops throughout the walk, you will also receive two hot meals. Lunch will be provided at one of the pit stops and at the end of each walk every participant will receive a meal voucher to spend in the Kiltwalk Village.

 ** Some parts of the walks may pose difficulties for wheelchair users.  If you have any questions regarding this please contact the Kiltwalk directly on 0141 611 7919 or email contactus@thekiltwalk.co.uk**

 

All funds raised will one again be boosted by 40% thanks to The Hunter Foundation. So if you raise £100 for SiMBA Sir Tom and the Foundation will top it up to £140!

 

We want to raise as much awareness for SiMBA and the work that we are doing in across Scotland. Did you know that :

> We currently supply Memory Boxes to the Early Pregnancy Unit, Neonatal Unit, Rubislaw Ward, Labour Suite and Mortuary in Aberdeen Maternity Hospital.

>We have also held a free advanced bereavement and palliative care study day in Robert Gordon University in conjunction with CHAS 

> In 2017 we unveiled our Family Room within the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. These beautiful rooms have formed the blue print for all of our rooms gong forward. In October 2018 we were delighted to unveil our family and quiet room in the Royal Alexandra Hospital Labour Ward. These vital rooms allow families to spend time with their baby in a homely setting before having to say goodbye.

> We have 5 Trees of Tranquillity in Scotland, life sized copper sculpture where every leaf is engraved in memory of a baby.

> We have closed facebook groups specifically to support those affected by the loss of a baby, a group for men only, grandparents, those who wish to share their babies photos. The groups are available 24 hours a day, giving families access exactly when they need it. https://www.simbacharity.org.uk/support/have-you-joined-our-closed-facebook-pages/
