Dunfermline Kiltwalkers




Dunfermline Kiltwalkers are a group of people who got together through a programme called DAFC Football Fans in Training. The programme is aimed at overweight men who want to make changes to their lifestyle, lose weight and get a bit fitter. It is run by DAFC community team coaches Gregor Tennant and Kelly Armstrong. The members have all been on a bit of personal journey for the last year or so in trying to get a bit fitter and lose some weight. So far, between us we have lost over 50 stone and doing a lot more sport and activities. These include football, body combat, boxercise, zumba and boot camp. Last year a few of us from the course decided to set ourselves a challenge and take part in The Kiltwalk. So on Easter Sunday last year we met up and headed off to Hampden Park for a bit of a stroll to Loch Lomond (26 miles). We had a great day along with 800 other Kiltwalkers and ate about the same amount of crème eggs whilst doing it. For our efforts we managed to raise £5500.00 for Scottish children's charities - CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association Scotland), TACC (Tartan Army Children's Charity), Aberlour, CLIC Sargent. We also got to choose a local children’s charity to donate 50% of the money we raised. For this we donated £2725.00 to Home Start, Dunfermline - who were very grateful for this.


This year we have decided to do The Kiltwalk again. But bigger and better than last year. There are 19 of us fatties doing it along with 3 staff members from our chosen charity Home Start and one of the team members 10 year old daughter. We are holding various fundraising activities up until the date of the walk on the 21st of April. We are hoping to raise in excess of £15,000.00 this year to help the Kiltwalk charities. In order to achieve this we need the help and support of local people and businesses.
