Fundraising challenge: Walk with me

Walk for SCIAF and your parish

Walk with us to brighter days. Together with our churches, we're launching “Walk with me”: a challenge to walk the distance of your diocese for SCIAF and your parish.

Our aim is to walk over 3,000 miles together - the distance from our office in Glasgow to Bethlehem. The closer we get and the more money we raise, the more people we can help. Together, we'll reach the Holy Land before Advent.

How it works

Travel the distance of the most southerly parish to the most northerly parish in your Catholic diocese before the holy season of Advent. 

  • Aberdeen: 215 miles (We've chosen the mainland parishes of St Mary’s, Stonehaven – St Anne’s, Thurso)
  • Argyll & the Isles: 118 miles (We've chosen the mainland parishes of St Mun’s, Dunoon – Our Lady of the Rosary & St Columba, Kingussie)
  • Dunkeld: 70 miles (St Mungo’s, Alloa – St Ninian’s, Brechin)
  • Galloway: 80 miles (St Joseph’s, Stranraer – St Mary Star of the Sea, Largs)
  • Glasgow: 38 miles (Holy Name, Mansewood (Glasgow) – St Peter & Paul’s, Arrochar)
  • Motherwell: 35 miles (St Isidore’s, Biggar – St Barbara’s, Muirhead)
  • Paisley: 31 miles (St Bridget’s, Eaglesham – St Ninian’s, Gourock)
  • St Andrew’s & Edinburgh: 100 miles (St Mary’s & St David’s, Hawick – St James, St Andrews)

You can walk or you can run. If you're up for it, why not try more than one diocese challenge? The choice is yours: complete the challenge in a weekend or space out your walks. You can take part on your own or join your parish group.
