The Kiltwalk is a unique Scottish Charity Event!
Each year thousands of walkers of all ages and abilities come together for an unforgettable day out and change lives. The Kiltwalk event is a powerful fundraising platform for our charity.
It would mean so much to Starchild if you were one of those inspired walkers and became a Starchild Kiltie.
Thanks to the Tom Hunter Foundation an incredible 150% of every penny raised goes to your selected Charity. This year, we hope you will consider Starchild.

You can choose between three walk lengths ( 6, 15, or 26 miles) in four cities

Stories from some of our Kilties
Lynn Campbell our very first Starchild KIltie
"I walked for Starchild because I knew Frankie and went to school with him. I felt he was with me all the way! As I saw the last signpost for 5K, I was struggling, but then I realised that is how far a child in Uganda walks for water EVERYDAY! That helped me to make it over the finish line. Then, when I was just about to cross the finish line, I saw Warren McIntyre, who was one of Frankie's best friends! He was organising the music at the Kiltwalk; Warren helped me across that finish line. It felt amazing!! It was like Frankie was right there with me. That's why I am doing it again this year. I hope you'll join me; I can't wait!!" Lynn
"For years I’ve wanted to do something different for charity other than attending a convention or just donating. So on April 2018 took part in the Glasgow Kiltwalk. I didn’t have a charity of choice until I met Rony Bridges at a sci-fi convention. We got talking, and the conversation came up about Starchild and the history behind it. The more Rony told me about it, the more I realised Starchild was more than a charity, it was a family. A few weeks later I contacted Rony and offered to do the Kiltwalk in honour of Frankie’s memory and raise money for the charity dedicated to his memory. From then I felt I wanted to do more. So I have been attending fundraising events, and this April will once again be doing the Kiltwalk on behalf of Starchild In Memory of Frankie Marsh." Robbie
