Raising money for Alzheimer Scotland and Royal Osteoporosis Society

Story

When my dear wife, Janet, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and Osteoporosis, I wanted to do something to benefit sufferers and carers everywhere.

I was 80 in April 2020 and my challenge was to raise £50,000 for Alzheimer Scotland and the Royal Osteoporosis Society by climbing the 282 Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000 feet) in 1200 days.

Sadly Janet passed away in December 2022.

Fortunately I was able to complete my challenge and surpass my fundraising target. I completed the challenge on 13th August 2022 (in less than 800 days) and raised over £80,000.

I was delighted to win the Just Giving Fundraised of the Year 2022 in the Endurance category.

I also hold the Guinness World Record for the Oldest Person to Bag the Munros.

My progress was recorded on Instagram (nicks.munro.challenge) and Facebook (nick.gardner.nmc1200).

You can read my full story on the individual fundraising pages.
