Relatives of former Dundee and Arbroath FC star John McGlashan are to take part in this weekend’s Kiltwalk in aid of Motor Neurone Disease Scotland.
John, who also managed Arbroath for four years, died at home on January 10, just six months after he had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease. He was only 50.
Since then his family has been raising money for research into MND and will continue their efforts at this Sunday’s Kiltwalk in Dundee.
John’s widow Dawn said: “Although it’s too late for us, we want to raise money to fund research as well as help others affected by this disease.”
So far their online appeal for sponsorship has raised nearly £700 for MND Scotland.
The Kiltwalk is just the latest in a series of fundraising endeavours undertaken by the family.
Dawn said: “My sister Kimberly raised more than £2,000 for MND Scotland by doing a 10k in Glasgow in June.”
Joining Dawn on the 11-mile Big Stroll from Tayport will be her daughter Hollie, sisters Louise and Kimberly and a number of family friends.
