The World’s Strongest Brothers are calling on people to donate to a cancer charity close to their hearts, which will be hosting a popular fundraising event tomorrow.
Tom and Luke Stoltman, from Invergordon, supported the call to participate in Maggie’s Highlands Run the Runway event, which takes place tomorrow (August 27) at Inverness Airport.
The brothers, who lost their mother to cancer in 2016, are supporting the event and doing everything to keep the fundraiser flying high.
Luke Stoltman said: “Mum was one of the strongest people we know, physically, mentally and emotionally, so we think that’s where our strength comes from.
“Everything we do, we do in mom’s memory, and that’s why we’re here today and raising awareness.
“Maggie has an awesome race tomorrow to run or walk the whole runway at Inverness Airport so we’re raising awareness as it’s a great charity and she holds a special place in our hearts.
“Maggie is a huge charity, it’s free to use and they offer support to anyone across the country – emotional, physical, whatever support you need, they’ll give it to you.
“We want to help raise as much money as possible for this great cause.”
Now in its fifth year, Run the Runway is a fundraising event that gives people the chance to take part in a 5km walk or run on the main runway at Inverness Airport at midnight, guided only by the runway lighting.
More than 140 people are expected for the event tomorrow.
Andrew Benjamin, Center Fundraising Manager for Maggie’s Highlands: “It’s amazing to have live events again, and it adds to the fun people have of being out and raising money for a cancer charity, which is extremely important right now.
“We are thrilled to have the Stoltman Brothers supporting our Run the Runway event. We would like to thank all the runners and those who donated for their support. With the cost of living having such a significant impact on people with cancer , we know Maggie’s support is needed more than ever.”
A new survey published by Maggie’s Highlands this week has found that more than a quarter of people in the UK who have been diagnosed with cancer are more concerned about the cost of living crisis than their cancer, with 77 per cent believing this affects their chances of succeeding. treatment.
