Iain is an inspirational person, legendary MS Gong rider, and superstar fundraiser.
Iain consistently goes above or beyond, year on year, and demonstrates the MS Community spirit.
Iain has raised an incredible $27,050 since 2017 to Fight MS.
His secret? Iain makes sure his fundraising stands out from the crowd!?Over the years, Iain has live-streamed shaving his legs, ridden in pink hair, placed MS tins at?local cafes, and has been creative with jersey sponsorship.
Iain says, “I do the Gong Ride every year to help raise funds to support people living with such a horrible disease, which I've seen affect people in so many different ways.
“I'll be putting together another Jersey for this year, hoping to fill the back of the jersey with names of people who have donated and businesses who've supported my fundraising.”
This year, Iain is also planning to host a stall at a local shopping centre selling reindeer he’s made from tree branches, with the proceeds going toward his fundraising efforts for people living with MS.
He's an all-round legend.
"I completed my first Gong ride back in 2017 to support a friend of mine, Matt, who had been recently been diagnosed and was having a rough time," says Iain.
"Matt?had a young family and spent about two months between hospital and rehab that year. I had a Jersey made to encourage sponsorship and wanted to give the Jersey to Matt as a show of support."
Since that first year, I've continued participating in the MS Gong Ride to keep supporting Matt, but also to support others that are battling with MS that I've been fortunate enough to meet through my involvement in the ride.
To his fellow fundraisers Iain says, "Take care of each other while on the ride and don't forget to raise some funds to support people living with MS.”
