We all wished Johnny Rutherford all the best for his charity cycle from John 0' Groats to Land's End which he is starting today. The run is scheduled to take nine days averaging 100 miles a day.
Accompanied by 600 others, including Olympians and Paralympians, Johnny is riding to raise money to set up a special immunology unit in Edinburgh Sick Kids' Hospital. There are only two units in Britain, neither of which is in Scotland.
Although used to doing triathlons, this is a real challenge for Johnny and we wish him "Safe Oot, Safe In".
If you wish to contribute to Johnny's sponsorship you can do so on line at:

Charity Registration No. SC041239
Johnny completed his ride in 72 hours despite a bout of tummy trouble. He has raised £1600 for the charity.
