Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity

Taking over Pit Stop 2, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity are back for their fourth Pit Stop takeover of the year! 

Making it four out of four, the team from Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity will be taking over Pit Stop 2 in Edinburgh.
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.
Whichever Pit Stop the team from GCHC takeover, Kiltwalkers can always expect a warm welcome.
This year, the Charity is looking for Kiltwalkers to Wander, Stroll and Stride in aid of its latest appeal, which is raising money to help children with kidney failure. Their kidneys may have failed, but for these patients and their families, failure is not an option.
For our everyone supporting GCHC, #FailureIsNotAnOption.
Each year, hundreds of children from across Scotland are treated on the Renal Ward for kidney failure – a life long, life limiting condition which cannot be cured.
This year, Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity are hoping to raise £500,000 through the Kiltwalk.
 
These children face years of medication and dialysis, and an endless wait until a kidney match becomes available for transplant.
 
Not only does kidney failure rob these children of their health, it robs them of their childhood as they spend many days in hospital each week away from their home, family and school friends.
 
With your support, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity hopes to raise £500,000 to enhance care and services on the unit, to ensure that these resilient children from across the country receive care on the Renal Ward that is second-to-none.
