Emma and Mark Jackson decided to tackle the 23-mile hike from Glasgow Green to Balloch, Loch Lomond to raise funds for Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland.
Their stepmum Suzanne passed away suddenly after suffering a stroke in November last year.
Emma, who lives in Milngavie said: “We wanted to do something in her memory as well as raise vital funds for this charity.
“Our aim was to raise £400 but our fund now stands at £2,500, with more donations still coming in, which is fantastic.”
Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation added an additional 40% to all funds raised by every walker
Emma and Mark’s dad Gary was there to see them on the big day. Emma said: “It took us seven hours to finish the 23 miles. Fortunately I’m not too bad, still able to walk!”
Emma works at Macmillan Cancer Support and Mark and Gary work at T Clarke construction company who agreed to sponsor them for the walk, along with local firm SBJ Engineering.
This year saw a record 6,500 people taking part in the Kiltwalk trek .
