To commemorate the 202nd anniversary of the Battle of the Longwoods, the UTMRS which portrays the 1814 Light Company of the Royal Scots will be again marching from Delaware to Battle Hill, the site of the battle, a distance of twenty miles. Again they will be raising funds in honour of five-year-old, for Pulmonary Hypertension, a terminal disease from which adults and children are afflicted.
If you wish to donate, or participate, please contact Brad Stott at 519 473 3814 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register and/or receive any further information.
The march will commence at 7:00 am, on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at the parking lot near the 402 exit on the Longwoods Road. The UTMRS will this year be joined by the Royal Scots Grenadier re-enactment group as well as any members of the public interested in the march or raising funds for PH.
The march will be broken into two components and marchers may do one or both of the components. The first component, will be the march to Melbourne, a distance of about 10 miles, along the Longwoods Road, and the second component, following lunch, will be to complete the other ten-mile march to Battle Hill.
Lunch will be served in Melbourne (location to be finalized) to all participants.
Last year, of the ten original marchers, seven completed the march by 3:30pm and raised over $1500 for Pulmonary Hypertension. There will be a chase vehicle available to provide support as needed.
