We have something special planned for September 3rd. The Vision Scotland team will be taking on a West Highland Way walking / running challenge in aid of the Vision Scotland’s ‘Sight Saving Surgery’ fundraiser. The Vision Scotland team will be joined by some of our community optometrist colleagues who will also be participating in the hike or joining the support team.
What ‘s involved?
Participants will choose to run or walk this event.
44 Miles from Fort William to Tyndrum (Strathfillan Wigwams)
24 Miles from Fort William to Glencoe
The 44 mile endurance hike will be physically and mentally challenging but also incredibly rewarding, life-affirming and team bonding. Both Consultant Surgeons, Mr Jonathan Ross and Mr Sanjay Mantry will be on this route.
For the 24 mile route, participants will walk the first half of the longer route but will stop at Glencoe where our support crew will take finishers to the end.
Mr Jonathan Ross and Mr Sanjay Mantry will give their time free of charge.
We will work with our local community optometrist colleagues to select suitable candidates.
