HIT Trustee and Chief Executive of Crerar Hotels, Chris Wayne Wills, is undertaking a 450-mile fundraising cycle in aid of HIT Scotland. On Sunday 17th September Chris will head off from the Balmoral Arms in Ballater and will visit Thainstone House Hotel in

Inverurie, The Golf View Hotel in Nairn, the Glencoe Inn, Oban Bay Hotel, the Isle of Mull Hotel, Loch Fyne Hotel in Inveraray and Dunkeld House Hotel before returning to the Balmoral Arms in Ballater on Friday 22nd September to complete the route.

There are a number of ways you can support Chris with his challenge. You can saddle up and join him for all or part of the cycle allowing you to explore the stunning landscapes of the highlands while raising vital funds for HIT Scotland. All the money raised will go

towards providing empowering inspirational development to those studying or working in the hospitality industry in Scotland.

Over the course of six days, you'll cycle through picturesque towns and villages, breathtaking coastal roads, and challenging mountain passes. But don't worry, thanks to Crerar Hotels, the entry fee includes luxury accommodation, delicious meals, and all the amenities

you need to rest and recharge for the next day's adventure. To find out more please email events@hitscotland.co.uk.

Alternatively, you can take part in the 450-mile route online either by yourself or as a team with your friends and colleagues. You can register for the online challenge by emailing events@hitscotland.co.uk . Whether you want to pedal for a purpose, swim for

scholarships or run to raise funds any miles count!

industry in Scotland.
