Six-year-old Oliver Davidson from Langholm recently took up the Doddie Aid challenge to raise money to help find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease.
Oliver started the January challenge on New Year’s Day hoping to raise £100 by doing 100 miles.
He walked, jogged, ran, biked, cartwheeled and even sledged to complete his 100miles, reaching his goal at Langholm Rugby Club, a month later, on February 1st.
Not to be outdone, however, Oliver carried on, bagging another 10 miles. He finished his challenge on Saturday, having completed over 110 miles and a raising a fantastic £444 for Doddie Aid in the process.
Some of his P2 school friends even donated their money from the tooth fairy!
Oliver was part of the “Muckletooners” group, who as a team, raised an amazing £3,824 for the mass participation event.
Doddie Aid was set up by former Scotland Captain and British and Irish Lion, Rob Wainwright. It raised one million pounds last year.
Oliver’s family hope his extraordinary efforts will help to raise some awareness of MND and Doddie’s fantastic charity.
Oliver will continue to wear his Doddie Aid buff and hoody with pride in his achievement.
His Mum Kirsty said, “We are thrilled to have won Alan’s very special Doddie tartan bear, he will take pride of place in Oliver’s bedroom!”
