They took 26,268 steps – and during every one of them they were thinking about their friend.
For a group of girls walked almost 16 miles to raise vital cash in tribute to Aimee Gibson.
Aimee was just 26 when she died of cancer earlier this month.
And a group of her pals decided they wanted to do something to raise funds for Stand Up To Cancer, the joint Channel 4, Cancer Research UK campaign.
Amy grew up in Girvan and was a former pupil of Girvan Academy.
But two years ago she moved to Maybole with her partner and the happy couple made their home there.
And her friend Heather Smith, who also lives in the town, organised the sponsored walk to take in both the towns that meant so much to her.
The group of 12 girls set off from Maybole Town Hall at 8am on the day and walked towards Dailly before making their way to Girvan.
Aimee’s mum, Liz, and her dad, Robert, met the girls when they arrived at Girvan and joined them for the final section of the walk, finishing at the Ainslie Park car park.
Heather said: “I thought the walk would be around 13 miles but it turned out to be 15.8 miles.
“The girls were tired at the end but it was a great day. The weather even stayed dry for us.”
The girls have already raised over £850 and are hoping to reach at least £1000.
