Southlands School launches Project Braveheart

Southlands School has announced the official launch of Project Braveheart, its three-stage physical activity challenge organised to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The Project Braveheart challenge consists of three elements; canoeing, cycling and mountain climbing

So far, some 16 students and staff have started training for the challenge that begins on 7 July 2014.

The event includes;

1. Canoeing for 60 miles through the Highland Great Glen and the entire length of Loch Ness. Students will then paddle through some of the most dramatic and inspiring countryside in Scotland from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the east. The journey is expected to take around three to five days depending on a number of factors including; fitness, type of craft used and group size. The trip will also include paddling Loch Lochy and the Caledonian Canal.

2. Cycling the 65 miles from Inverness to the town of Fort William.

3. Climbing Ben Nevis, which at 1,334m (4,406ft) is the highest mountain in the British Isles and located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to Fort William.
