Gallop and Grind is a charity event taking place on the 27th September 08 in Fort William. It’s in aid of Sharon Fraser(39), who has been diagnosed with cancer, and wants to raise money for The Belford Hospital, and Raigmore’s Oncology Ward in Inverness, as she feels they have helped her, and her family, immensely through this period, and at present.
I have known Sharon for many years now, through Feis Fort Augustus and other projects, and as sad as this news is, Sharon’s inspirational attitude towards life, her family, and 4 children make this event all the more worth while.
The event starts between 11.30-12.15pm at Lochaber Leisure Centre, where you can choose to walk 3.5miles only or challenge yourself to walk 3.5 miles then cycle 9.5miles to the finish line. THIS IS NOT A RACE but by all means time yourself, or beat your friend to the end, but it’s all meant to be fun and a great day out.
If you think you have what it take’s to take part in this event, or can spare some money to this very worth while cause, then please contact MacPhee & Partners on 01397 701000.
There will also be a free ceilidh after the event in the Nevis centre. It starts around 7.30pm and also has a huge raffle, so if you cannot manage along during the day, then please get along at night.
