Team DEBRA at the finish line of the Edinburgh Kiltwalk with Graeme Souness

On Sunday 18th September, Team DEBRA took part in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk!

The team, including DEBRA CEO, Tony Byrne, and Chair of Trustees, Jim Irvine, was joined by DEBRA Vice President and Scottish footballing legend, Graeme Souness.

The Kiltwalk was led off by 14 year old Isla Grist, who lives with Recessive Dystrophic EB. Isla joined the team and completed the 13 mile Kiltwalk route in her wheelchair.

Graeme, Isla's father, Andy Grist, Jim Irvine and Professor Gareth Inman, researcher at the CRUK Beatson Institute at University of Glasgow, all took on the 22 mile Mighty Stride for DEBRA.

So far the team have raised over £10,000 to help stop the pain for people like Isla living with the painful genetic skin blistering condition, EB.

All donations from the Kiltwalk are generously matched up to 50% by Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation.
