A team from the University of Aberdeen Business School undertook the Aberdeen Kiltwalk to raise funds for the University of Aberdeen Development Trust.
Two members of the Business School, Deborah Park and Lucia Giuntoli, along with two friends, completed the Big Stroll section of the Aberdeen Kiltwalk on Sunday 2nd June to raise funds for Cancer Research, through the University of Aberdeen Development Trust.
Supporting innovative research is one the key priorities of the Development Trust, and the University of Aberdeen has been at the forefront of many developments in cancer diagnosis and treatment. The Development Trust is currently supporting a £4.5million fundraising campaign to develop a world-class Cancer Research programme.
Deborah and Lucia said, "We had a great time on the walk. It runs through some of the most beautiful scenery along Deeside. Lots of people that live along the route came out to support us and supply home-made fudge and cakes to keep us going - a bonus we did not expect but really added to the fun of the walk. We’re a bit stiff and sore today but it was worth it - It felt fantastic to raise funds for such a good cause!”
Deborah and Lucia made their target amount but if you would like to make a donation they would be very grateful. All donations go to the University of Aberdeen Development Trust to support cancer research, and this year the Hunter Foundation is making a matched contribution of 40% for all funds raised.
