More than 500 cyclists will simultaneously cycle 57 miles today to raise cash for state-of-the-art prosthetic limbs for Corinne Hutton, 43.
Doctors amputated Corinne's hands and legs below the knee after the Renfrewshire mother-of-one developed life-threatening septicaemia after suffering double acute pneumonia.
Her closest friends and family immediately set up Finding Your Feet, a fund to raise money to buy prosthetics and make her Scotland's first bionic mum.
The money raised will also be used to help others in similar situations to regain their lives.
Corinne is already training to walk her first mile through Glasgow's city centre in the New Year.
Cyclists will take part in Glasgow, Seattle, Dubai, Singapore, Shanghai and Cape Town in a bid to raise £250,000.
Among those taking part will be Andrew Prenelle, who will take time out from his honeymoon in the Dominican Republic.
Davy Hutton, Corinne's older brother and co-founder of Finding Your Feet, said: "The technology to make Corinne bionic is there and we will rebuild her, better than before and stronger than before, so she can lead the life she did prior to her illness."
