The sixth annual Maggie’s Culture Crawl is set to hit Aberdeen’s streets on Friday, June 16, when hundreds of fundraisers will walk eight miles to raise money for those living with cancer.

A fantastic £58,000 was raised from last year’s walk, and the team at Maggie’s is hoping to keep the positive momentum going again this year.

The event will take place in the city centre with fundraisers set to stop at some of the city’s iconic venues enjoying refreshments, live entertainment and surprises throughout the crawl.

Maggie’s Aberdeen Fundraising Manager, Richard Stewart commented: “I am overjoyed to be able to hold our annual Culture Crawl again in Aberdeen city centre. I look forward to this event more and more each year. It allows us to stay active, walk with friends and family, explore local venues, and raise as much money as possible for those living with cancer.

“Once again, we will get to see a sea of orange hit the streets as the crawl returns to its original format following two years of restrictions forced by the pandemic.

“The event allows for local businesses and communities to come together to rally behind the walkers, allowing us to celebrate our city’s culture at each stage of the walk. The valued contribution of Aberdeen businesses helps make the event more impactful year after year.

“I would like to extend my thanks to our amazing staff at Maggie’s and our valued fundraisers for allowing the culture crawl to continue for another year through their continued support. I cannot wait to see our fundraisers hit the streets and begin raising money for those who need it most.”

The funds collected from this year’s culture crawl will be added to the existing pot of £142,000 raised from the Valentine's Ball. With more fundraising events lined up for 2023, the charity is looking forward to a great year ahead.
