Intrepid Perth and Kinross Disability Sport members will join forces with friends and family to travel more than 500 miles this weekend.
They will raise money by donning a piece of tartan and taking part in the Virtual Dundee Kiltwalk from July 3-5.
With the original event postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers remained keen to develop a new way for charities to receive a welcome boost.
The group from Perth and Kinross Disability Sport (PKDS) have already raised more than £3500.
Branch coordinator Graeme Doig said: “I kept an eye on this year’s kiltwalk developments with the restrictions that COVID-19 has brought to our communities.
“When I saw the adaptation to a virtual kiltwalk I knew there would be interest from a number of people who participate in our events, programmes and courses.
“So far we have 13 people signed up to our team and would be delighted if anyone else would like to join us.
“The virtual element means you can set yourself a target distance from within the safety of your own local area, ensuring social distancing guidelines are followed.
“Our team is called ‘Can We Walk 500 Miles?’ and that is the distance we aim to collectively cover with family and friends joining in too.
“We hope this will be a very positive experience for all taking part whilst donning a kilt or piece of tartan if they have it.
“Our team plan to use a variety of mobility equipment to support them including racerunners, kaye walkers, wheelchairs, powerchairs and trikes.
“Murran MacKay, a wheelchair racer from Perth Strathtay Harriers, is aiming for 26 miles over the three days.
“The emphasis is firmly on doing your very best and challenging yourself over the distance you complete.
“Each member of the team is raising vital funds for Perth and Kinross Disability Sport.”
Graeme added: “The coronavirus has had a huge impact on everyone over the past few months.
“We are all feeling the effects of isolation and being unable to take part in our usual weekly routine.
“Raising funds for our
charity has also been a challenge during these uncertain times, with many donations quite rightly going to the NHS and the fight against the coronavirus.
“But we hope to raise enough funds to support our schools event programme for next year as well as some specialist equipment to allow even more people with a disability to participate in sport or physical activity.”
PKDS runs sport and physical activities for people of all ages with a physical, sensory or learning disability.
Graeme said: “We have been working closely with Active Schools, local clubs and sports development officers to bring inclusive sport and activity online.
“We have developed new fun activities to try at home which have been very popular on our social media channels.
“And we have also been communicating with club members through Zoom calls, online quizzes and general check-ins.
“We hope this kiltwalk challenge will give everyone an opportunity to focus on physical activity again and improve their wellbeing as we prepare for the return to sport in the coming months.”
