ProjectScotland launches 940 km extreme sporting challenge


ProjectScotland, a charity which encourages young people to volunteer in their community, has launched a 940 km extreme sports challenge to raise funds for young people across Scotland.

The challenge, dubbed Unbreakable, will see 50 volunteers embark on a gruelling test of physical and mental endurance as they cycle, swim, sail, kayak and hike across Scotland over eight days, from 2 – 9 August.

Participants will travel through iconic Scottish locations from Edinburgh and Fort William, to Glencoe and Aberfoyle.

Paul Reddish, CEO of ProjectScotland, said: “At ProjectScotland we believe that young people have the talent to transform their lives and the communities around them, all they need is the right support to help that happen.”

The challenge will include  various stages in different sports

“Through Unbreakable, our aim is to raise £100,000, with every penny going towards helping young people in Scotland get on in life.”

“Given the magnitude of the challenge, training and preparation is essential, which is why we’ve partnered with Olympic athlete David Carry to host an outdoor swimming and water skills masterclass in June.”

Olympian David Carry commented: “Unbreakable will be no mean feat. It will be long, tough and punishing and I am truly excited to be supporting the event.”
