It was the Glasgow Half Marathon on Sunday the 1st of October, and Wise Property Care’s Nadeem Shahid was taking part to help raise money for MS Society Scotland. Our “Nad” raised over £920 for the charity, a total that was helped along by a donation of £300 from Wise Property Care.
Nad’s original target was £600, so a huge congratulations to him on absolutely smashing it!
Who are MS Society Scotland?
MS Society Scotland are a community of people from all walks of life who raise money to help people affected by MS (Multiple Sclerosis). The charity supports people living with MS and also funds research into improving treatments.
MS is a neurological condition, which means it affects the nervous system. It is caused when someone’s immune system is not working properly. The effects of Multiple Sclerosis can be different for each individual, as symptoms can occur in many parts of the body. The condition affects around 100,000 people across the country.
Nadeem - The Running Man
Nadeem, or “Nad” as we know him, is a keen runner and Wise Property Care were more than happy to sponsor him for his most challenging run to date, particularly because he was doing it for such a worthy cause.
“I have been running for a while, 5k here, 10k there, but nothing quite like this” said Nad.
“I know a lot of people raise money for charity at these events and I really wanted to contribute to a worthy cause whilst pushing myself to do my best run yet.
I managed to run the half marathon in just over 2 hours, which was really satisfying, but what really made the day for me was meeting the people from MS Society Scotland at the finish line and knowing that I had managed to raise some cash for such a great charity.”
