Emma Muldoon from Glenrothes, took part in the Caledonian Etape a 40-mile cycle starting in Pitlochry to raise funds for the Fife Health and Wellbeing Fund. The fund was launched by us to invest in programmes and facilities to support people in Fife living with long-term health conditions.
We are saying a big thank you to a loyal customer who took on a cycling challenge to raise funds to help people across Fife living with long-term health conditions.
Emma’s challenge was boosted by Thornton Primary School, Kinglassie Primary School, and Auchmuty High School thanks to support from pupils and teachers.
Emma, who is a teacher at Kinglassie Primary School, said: “I am so grateful for the support everyone has showed me – the schools raised awareness of the Fife Health and Wellbeing Fund and Thornton Primary School hosted a health and sports-themed day which raised money towards my fundraiser. And Kinglassie Primary School is having a sporty dress down day and will also donate proceeds. I’d like to thank all the businesses and local people who supported the day with prizes for the children. The day was a great success and the kids had a great time.
“As a family we enjoy access to community sporting facilities – the benefits of getting active for our health and wellbeing are invaluable. For people living with a health condition, physical activity can be invaluable for the health and social benefits which is why I’m raising money for the fund.”
Emma Walker, chief executive for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “We’d all like to congratulate Emma on her achievement and thank her for doing a fantastic job by inspiring others and raising awareness of the importance of physical activity.
“As a charitable trust, we are committed to making a difference to local communities – our health programme is a vital service for a wide range of people across Fife and fundraising efforts like Emma’s make a huge difference to our ability to deliver sessions.”
