On Saturday 29th August a group of keen lads completed the Ben Lawers 7 munros in aid of two charities very close to their hearts. These were both the Kirsty Maxwell Charity and Macmillian Cancer Support, with fundraising being split between the two.
They have attempted to keep fit during lockdown by running and cycling, and wanted to take on a challenge that was difficult but achievable with their fitness level.
Adam, Gordon, Duncan, Ross, Scott, Andy, Kenny and Cameron (affectionately known as the Deans Chippy Mob) decided on the Ben Lawers 7 Munros. It took them a total of 8.5 hours covering 13 miles to complete.
Kirsty was a big part of their lives and they wanted to help both the family who are still pushing for answers and other families experiencing something similar. They decided this would be a great opportunity to raise funds in memory of Kirsty.
They also choose to split the funds with Macmillian Cancer Support, a charity close to many peoples hearts, following the terminal diagnosis of one of the groups dads.
