From London To Rio in 15 Days

Scots who fancy getting fit can tour a virtual route of the Olympic cities of the world when they take part in a fun-filled sporting challenge in support of Cornerstone.

Teams of up to 30 are being invited to convert miles into pounds when they cycle, run and walk on a virtual tour from London to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in 15 days as part of the annual Cornerstone Challenge, which starts on Saturday 15 September, 2012.

Vanessa Smith, Cornerstone's Regional Corporate Relations and Fundraising Co-ordinator, said that by entering a team and raising money as part of the 2012 Cornerstone Challenge, participants would make a real difference to people with disabilities in Scotland.

"The Cornerstone Challenge is the perfect way to improve your overall health and fitness, tone your muscles, strengthen your heart and feel great, as well as being a great team-building activity," she said.

"Cycling, running and walking as much as you can for 15 days to clock up as many miles as you can and your miles will move you along the virtual route and up your league.  By taking part you are helping Cornerstone support people throughout Scotland with disabilities to live independently, take part in activities they enjoy, get a job and make new friends." 

One of the projects supported by the funds raised this year will be a new social housing development in Portlethen, Aberdeenshire, which will comprise flats for six people with specific support needs.
