Donors raise money while wearing kilts

The Rock Trust works to provide opportunities for young vulnerable homeless and socially excluded people in Edinburgh and other areas of Scotland.

To raise funds for the important work, they help organize The Rock Trust Kilt Walk where every entrant is asked to raise a minimum sponsorship target of just £50 and where a kilt. The money raised goes directly to The Rock Trust.

Its a new sponsored walk with a difference for all the family where you can proudly wear your kilt, along with hundreds of other kilted walkers, on a 5km route around some of Scotland's most famous sights.
The event this year was on Sunday. Organizers claimed before the walk they would have more than 250 walkers. Not only will walkers receive a commemorative kiltpin, everybody who completes the route can enjoy a post-walk concert at the Ross Theatre, featuring Scottish band Scocha.

The organizer Gerard McCauley even told one reporter he received a phone call from a group of vacation planners in Brazil who were really keen to be involved.

Is the kilt walk the offline equivalent of an online community space bringing together diversity people from all over the world to take part in a charity fundraising event?
