May Munro Challenge

28-30 May 2021

Sign up


Step up and step out this spring by joining our May Munro Challenge team and tackling a mighty Munro – either virtually or in person!

Whether you fancy bagging your first Munro or want to try some weatherproof hillwalking from home, you’ll be helping people with chest, heart and stroke conditions do more than survive – you’ll help them really live.

Taking part is simple:

  • Choose to tackle a Munro in person* or opt for a virtual Munro and we’ll let you know how many steps it takes to reach the top
  • Set out on your climb on the May Munro Challenge weekend, 28-30 May 2021
  • Walk the steps to the summit – whether it’s up and down your stairs, around your local park or at the Munro itself!

Sign up now for just £5 and pledge to raise at least £25 to help people across Scotland live their lives to the full.

*Please note, in-person May Munro Challenges will only take place if Scottish Government guidance allows. If restrictions are in place which mean you can’t travel to your chosen Munro, we’ll be on hand to help you tackle it virtually instead.

You’ll be helping people like Mike

By signing up for the May Munro Challenge, you’re doing something amazing. You are the difference between someone just surviving and really living.

You’ll be helping people like Mike, who had a stroke two years ago. He was struggling to cope, until he met our stroke nurse Tom.

“After my stroke, I was in a dark place,” explains Mike. “I sometimes worried I wouldn’t be able to wake up in the morning. That I might have another stroke.

“It’s amazing to think how far I’ve come with the help of Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.”

But Tom from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland was there for me.

“He came to visit me at home and reassured me there was light at the end of the tunnel.”

Tom helped Mike get the support he really needed, including sessions with a psychologist to help him control his anxiety.

Mike is certain that his story isn’t unique for men in Scotland. “I was being a typical man and thinking that I should deal with things by myself. Sharing was a sign of weakness, you know? But I was a mess and bottling everything up was making things so much worse.

“Asking for help was one of the best things I have ever done. I’m so lucky, and grateful that Tom was there for me – when I really needed someone to reach out to.”

So, it’s time to get your fundraising hero cape on and raise money to make sure more people like Mike get the support they need.
