Ellen and Jessica’s Kiltwalk Challenge

In 2021, the holiday season took an unexpected turn for Ellen when her father, Kevin, received a mesothelioma diagnosis. Despite Ellen and her daughter, Jessica, savouring every moment with their father and grandfather, the emotional weight of his passing a year later caught them off guard, leaving an empty place in their hearts.

Determined to honour their dad and grandad, they decided to conquer the Kiltwalk challenge in Kevin’s memory- raising a giant £1300! Read their full story here.

“We joined a huge party at the finish line with free snacks and music – it was an amazing atmosphere. I have never felt so proud, Jess was over the moon and took her medal into school to show her teacher and friends.”

Why take on the Kiltwalk for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation?

  • We are the only lung cancer charity in the UK dedicated to helping everyone affected by lung cancer.
  • Lung cancer is a disease that, despite what many may think, can affect anyone.
  • It is the UK’s biggest cancer killer, with over 36,000 dying from lung cancer every year. It kills more people than breast, prostate and pancreatic cancer combined, and more women than breast and ovarian cancer combined.
  • It is our mission to ensure everyone diagnosed with lung cancer can live well with the disease for as long as possible.
