£55,000 fundraised in memory of Robert

Ryan and Jordan McKenna

Jun 2019: Friends and family of Robert Ferguson Paulley have generously fundraised for the Euan MacDonald Centre to find new treatments and a cure for MND. 

Robert Ferguson Paulley lived with motor neurone disease for 5 years but sadly passed away from the disease in 2013. His memory lives on though through his friends and family and it has spurred them on to raise funds to support MND research and the Euan MacDonald Centre. To date the amazing figure of over £55,000 has been raised in Robert’s memory. 

Many friends were sponsored to run races whilst others raised money at their workplace. Helping with the cause was also comedian Kevin Bridges whose appearance on TV show Who Wants to be a Millionaire added to the total.

Most recently at the end of April 2019, Robert's best friend Ryan McKenna ran the Stirling marathon and raised over £11,000. 

Ryan kindly spared some time to tell us more about his fundraising and you can read more on his supporters' stories page.
