Great Strides a seven mile family walking event run by The Sick Kids Friends Foundation and sponsored by SPAR Scotland which took place on Sunday 4th September, in Edinburgh.  Edinburgh Sick Kids is a foundation that exists to transform the experiences of children and young people in hospital so they can be a child first and a patient second.

Hundreds of people along with their young children and dogs gathered in The Meadows Park to take part in the walk which led them along the Innocent Railway to Craigmillar Castle and back. The high turnover, beautiful weather and lots of fun activities for the youngest ones was what made the day extra special.

Following support from SPAR and everybody involved, the event was a massive success and a fantastic amount of money was raised which will now help fund vital services within the area.
