Agnieszka Czechon

Agnieszka is our Research Officer, who decided to support The Row Fogo Centre for Research into Ageing and the Brain by taking part in a two-day challenge of walking the distance over 20 miles (35 km) along Edinburgh and Midlothian footpaths, as part of Scotland's Virtual Kiltwalk.

Unfortunately, due to minor injury Agnieszka was not able to attend her fundraising event. We wish her a swift return to health and wish that she will choose to support The Row Fogo Centre in another fundraising event.
