Kilwinning to Kilmarnock charity #Walk4Lionheart a major success
A 13-mile charity walk organised by a group of Ayrshire College students was enjoyed by over 200 people on Friday 19 May.
HND Fitness, Health and Exercise students at the Kilmarnock Campus invited members of the community to take part in the #Walk4Lionheart, organised in memory of Adrian ‘Lionheart’ McCallum, a former student of the College and much-loved professional wrestler.
As well as raising awareness of mental health, the event raised money for three local charities selected by the HND group: Beautiful Inside and Out, the Kris Boyd Charity and Megan’s Space. Donations can still be made at https://bit.ly/walk4lionheartJG.
Organised as part of the College’s award-winning #PassingPositivity initiative, the event took place during mental health awareness week and national walking month.
Sky Sports News were in attendance at Ayrshire College’s Kilmarnock Campus to film the walkers at the finish line and speak to Kris Boyd about the event and the work of his charity.
