Strathallan Prep School pupil Hunter Stevens cycled over 200 miles in March for Maggie’s Highlands, raising over £1900 for the charity.
Hunter, who studies at Strathallan School in Perthshire, undertook the huge effort with his family.
His father, Quintin Stevens, is undertaking the Maggie’s 500 Challenge this summer, a tough test of cycling endurance, demanding participants climb the equivalent height of Mount Everest over 500 miles of trails and roads in the Cairngorm National Park.
The 11-year-old from Inverness, said: ‘I’m so delighted to have completed my challenge to cycle 200 miles in March for Maggie’s Highlands.’
Since opening 14 years ago Maggie’s Highlands provides free care and support for over 11,000 visitors a year. Run entirely on voluntary donations, the charity is close to Hunter’s heart. The young cyclist said he was over the moon to have exceeded his fundraising goal.
Hunter continued: ‘Maggie’s is a really important charity for me and my family. It’s great to be able to raise money for them when other fundraising events have been put on hold due to covid restrictions. I can’t wait to see what my dad does and cheer him on in September.’
