I want to give a big shout of support to Scott Cunningham and his guide dog Travis! At this moment, they are in the midst of hiking the West Highland Way again, a 95-mile long trail across rugged Scottish Highlands terrain. Scott lost his eyesight, in just a few weeks, 16 years ago to a rare eye disease. Since then he and Travis have hiked all of the major trails in the UK while raising money to train guide dogs.
Joining them are legends and former players from the Glasgow Rangers Football Club (rugby on this side of the pond). Terry Hurlock is walking the whole way with him and they will be joined by Mark Hateley, Arthur Numan who is the patron of his TravisTrek Charity, Alex Rae, Andy Goram, Mark Walters, Stuart McCall, John Brown, Gordon Durie, Gordon Dalziel and a few more. The team is being supported by the Royal Marine Commandos.
They started their trek on March 28th and should finish in Fort William on April 3rd. Hmmm, rugby players and commandoes. I'm still betting on Scott and Travis being the toughest of the bunch!
