Marstons ‘Walk The High Road’ Huge Success

walk-the-high-road

All of the Team at the ROHHAD Association would like to say A HUGE THANK YOU to all those from Marstons who ‘Walked The High Road for ROHHAD’ On Wednesday the 28th of September.  As expected the weather was miserable, it rained all day and the team were soaked to the skin !!  However they did not let it dampen their spirits and everyone of them completed the 16 mile Hike from Balloch to Luss and Back again.  The team had members from all over Scotland and the North of England.  Aaron was there to cheer them on as they finished and he presented them with a medal; he wanted to say thank you for helping him and his special friends around the world fighting ROHHAD.

After completing all those miles, the team stayed on for The Queen Of The Loch Quiz night.  It was a lot of fun and many of our local supporters came along as well as some special friends from America, Sedona’s Mum and Dad were on vacation in Scotland; so the Team at Marstons were able to meet 2 families affected by the cruel disease ROHHAD.

It is never too late to sponsor the team !! please donate via this link

We would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Team ROHHAD Association Avengers who took on and completed the 3 Peaks Challenge recently in aid of the ROHHAD Association.

The challenge was impressive and very demanding physically however the Team completed it in within the 24hrs.  The total amount raised in sponsorhip will be updated in the next few weeks once all sponsor money has been collected in and counted.

Congratulations to Ian Hunter, Stephen Whyte, Chris Whitbread, Scott Kitchener, Thomas Kitchener, Colin Blake and Scott Richardson on completing the challenge and Thank you so much for helping raise awareness and funds for the charity.  

Special thank you to Liam McColl of McColls Coaches who sponsored the transport for challenge.  The driver Andy was a crucial part of the team and transported them safely to Wales, between the 3 peaks in England and Scotland and home again. The support given to the team by McColls Coaches was incredible and we are truly grateful to them for helping.  

Finally we would like to thank all those who sponsored the gentlemen as they undertook this challenge and assure you that every penny you have donated will be used for medical research into ROHHAD; allowing doctors to understand it better and hopefully improve treatments and find a cure.

Here are some photos of the team in Action !!
