An Abertay Computer Arts graduate will be running his first half-marathon at the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run on 30th September, to help raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society.
Keagan Renaud was motivated to raise funds after a close family member was diagnosed with the condition, which, from his perspective as a keen snowboarder, surfer and motorcyclist, only highlighted how physically limiting it can be for those affected by the illness.
"I just want medical researchers to find a cure - this half-marathon is my way of helping."
The Graphic Designer said: "When I was studying at Abertay, a close family member was diagnosed with MS. Everyone has been really supportive over this time but now I just want medical researchers to find a cure - this half-marathon is my way of helping."
To help with his challenge, Keagan’s employer, Arnold Clark in Glasgow, have pledged to match every pound he raises up to £1000.
