Upmo Sponsored Walk 2019

You are warmly invited to join us for our forthcoming annual Upmo Sponsored Walk which this year takes place on Thursday 13th  June from 11.00 am – 1.00 pm. After the walk, we are hoping to have a picnic in Holyrood Park, if the weather permits!

Since our first ever sponsored walk back in 2011, the event has grown steadily to become a real highlight in our calendar. As well as being a fun but challenging activity for students, friends and families, funds raised make a significant contribution to the cost of one-off activities and events during the year which otherwise might not take place. 

Last year, the event raised over £3700 thanks to all the students, family members, volunteers and staff who took part. This year, we are aiming to raise at least £3000!

As in previous years, the route is 5K (3 ½ miles) and follows the road around Arthur’s Seat. It is very safe and easily manageable in a wheelchair. There is stunning scenery, amazing views (here’s hoping for a sunny day!) and of course, great company!

If you would like more information or you would like to register to take part (it’s a free event), please contact Liz on 0131 661 4411 or via emaillizkirby@upmo.org

A sponsorship form is available to download here.

Alternatively, our JustGiving campaign page makes it really easy to share information and collect sponsorship:


If you are unable to take part, but you’d like to donate, you can do that through our JustGiving page too.

Special thanks to Sandy Sutherland and Historic Scotland for helping us organize this event!
