More than 500 cyclists will simultaneously ride 92km tomorrow to raise cash for state-of-the-art prosthetic limbs for Corinne Hutton.
Doctors were forced to amputate Corinne's hands and legs below the knee after the Renfrewshire mum-of-one developed septicaemia after suffering double acute pneumonia.
Corinne, 43, 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 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 to cycle the 92km route.
Meanwhile, ex-Commando Vic "Stumpz" McAnkrah will complete the 92km cycle along with 200 others around Dubai's most iconic landmarks, before jetting straight back to Scotland to begin a circumnavigation of Arran less than 24 hours later.
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.
"Then we will help others like her. These cycle events are not only to help Corinne but to inspire others to get up on their feet and do something."
Corinne, from Lochwinnoch, said: "I have been humbled by the support from family, friends and strangers alike.
"All I want is to be the same independent and active mum I was before my illness.
"Due to my injuries, the only way I can achieve this is with bionic limbs. I want my wee boy, Rory, to be proud of me. He already tells his friends I will be his X-Mum."
