Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity

Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity sits at the heart of Scotland’s largest children’s hospital, raising money to ensure that every baby, child and young person treated there has the best possible care and experience.

No strangers to Kiltwalkers, the GCHC team are back at Kiltwalk Glasgow!

This year, the Charity is looking for Kiltwalkers to wander, stroll and stride in aid of its Schiehallion Appeal, to help more young patients like Amelie beat cancer.

Make Your Kiltwalk Count For Kids Fighting Cancer

This week, two more children in Scotland like Amelie will be diagnosed with cancer. More than two thirds of those children will be treated in wards 2A and 2B, known to many as Schiehallion, at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

Although 8 out of 10 children with cancer will survive beyond 5 years, cancer is still a leading cause of death of children in Scotland.

Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity is calling on Kiltwalkers to fundraise and help bring even more of the latest cancer treatments to the hospital’s clinical trials centre.

Clinical trials can give children like Amelie access to a new type of treatment when conventional treatments have failed. While Amelie’s current treatment has reduced the size of her tumour, her family have no guarantee that it will continue to work.

Kiltwalk To Help Kids Beat Cancer

Your Kiltwalk Kindness can help Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity expand the Clinical Trials Centre at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

With more early phase clinical trials available in Glasgow, fewer children will need to travel further afield for treatment which might just save their lives.

By walking for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity at this year’s Kiltwalk, you will be helping to give brave young patients battling cancer the best possible chance in their fight.
