Members of Edinburgh University’s Orienteering Club (EUOC) are fundraising for Scottish Mountain Rescue this weekend, 6 & 7 March 2021 and have set up a GoFundMe page.
Their plan is simple: how much height can they collectively climb in a weekend?
As well as all the donations received on their GoFundMe page, the EUOC plan to donate additional monies, with all the money going towards Scottish Mountain Rescue.
Alastair Thomas, Vice Captain of EUOC, said “As orienteers we enjoy training and racing in the beauty of the Scottish outdoors, and obviously this comes with an inherent risk. The Scottish Mountain Rescue is a group of volunteers who will respond to emergencies in remote places 365 days of the year, 24 hours of the day. We at EUOC are forever grateful for the service they provide, and this fundraiser is a way of giving back to them.”
They will be running their local hills and obeying all COVID restrictions.
If you would like to support their efforts, and raise money for Scottish Mountain Rescue, please visit their GoFundMe page.
On behalf of the 24 teams and 850 volunteers that make up Scottish Mountain Rescue, we would like to thank the participants and wish them good luck for their challenge.
