Lochgoilhead’s Kenny runs 500km for Scouting
Lochgoilhead Instructor Kenny Noble is taking on the 34-mile 3 Lochs Way challenge to support Scouts Scotland’s work with young people at their activity centre in Lochgoilhead.
Kenny, who also leads the 1st Bo’ness Explorers, hopes to raise £500 to buy specialist water sports equipment at Lochgoilhead, so young people with additional needs can enjoy the same experience as everyone else.
Kenny only took up running last year and having already completed the Arrochar 10K and the Beyond the Tay Adventure Race, he aims to have run over 500km by the time he completes the challenge.
"Over the past decade, it has been a privilege to work with so many young people and show them brand new experiences that they don't get anywhere else. Taking this challenge is my way giving something back to the centre that has given me so much as a volunteer and staff member,” says Kenny.
"My time as a volunteer in Scouting gave me lots of confidence in my own abilities and that I can take on any challenge that confronts me. Scouting really helps you grow as a person and being able to support young people do the same is a great feeling."
