GIC’s Virtual Kiltwalkers

Glasgow Ice Centre’s fantastic volunteer fundraisers are going to be out and about raising money this April by completing challenges for the Virtual Kiltwalk. The event runs between Friday 23rd and Sunday 25th April and invites participants to walk, run, skip or jump as we’re not able to meet for the usual mass gathering of kilted walkers across Scotland.

Here’s a profile of what some of #TeamGIC will be getting up to

If you’d like to join the team, you can register here You can take on any Kiltwalk Inspired challenge you wish – go for a walk (of any length), a cycle, jump on a trampoline or even a family scavenger hunt! You decide on your challenge and as long as you’re raising funds for your chosen Scottish charity … anything goes!

Another big advantage of becoming a Kiltwalker – as well as helping us raise funds for the development of ice sports in Glasgow – is that you will automatically be put in a draw to win a prize from Kiltwalk Headline sponsor Arnold Clark. They’re giving away two cars and five electric bikes!

The Hunter Foundation have also pledged again this year to boost ALL your donations by 50%
