ON Saturday 21 June, the big-hearted team from ISG is to take part in the gruelling Rob Roy Challenge, one of Scotland’s most successful fundraising events.
Covering 55 miles of the spectacular Rob Roy Way, the team of 16 from ISG’s Glasgow office will walk or run 16 miles from Drymen near Loch Lomond through the Trossachs to Callander.
There, they switch to bikes for a 39-mile cycle to Kenmore, with the Challenge expected to take between eight and 12 hours. The event ends at Kenmore where a sumptuous and well-deserved feast and party is laid on for the exhausted competitors.
Launched in 2006, the Rob Roy Challenge is the Martin Currie Charitable Foundation’s main fundraising event and to date, the Challenge has raised in excess of £2.5 million.
This year, beneficiaries of the 2014 challenge include Water Aid, Barnardos and Over the Wall, the UK children’s charity which provides free activity camps to help children with life-limiting illnesses.
In the past three years ISG’s Scottish office has raised over £18,000 for various charities by taking part in similar events, and this year they are aiming add another £6,000 to that total, so anyone interested in making a donation to their sterling efforts can do so by following this link; http://my.artezglobal.com/TeamPage.aspx?teamID=60122&langPref=en-CA
