President of Queen’s University Students’ Union, Niall McShane, will combine four runs in an eight week period to raise £4,000 for local charities.

Benefitting from this remarkable feat will be the Michaela Foundation, MacMillan Cancer Support, Age NI and Northern Ireland Chest, Heart & Stroke.

The fundraising challenge, known as ‘RUN 4 RAG’, requires Niall to complete four runs in four different counties for the four Queen’s RAG charities. These tough runs include; the Omagh Half Marathon, the Great Ireland run (Dublin), the Belfast Marathon and the Newry Marathon.

Niall, from Cullyhanna, explains the reason why he is completing the ‘RUN 4 RAG’ challenge. “Each and every one of us has the ability to give in some shape or form to make a difference – may that be the giving of your time, your skills, your experience or your money.

He added, “I wanted to give some of my time through this personal challenge to help raise vital funds which will go a long way to helping support the activities of four fantastic local charities. Hopefully, I can make a difference through this initiative and inspire others to see the benefits of giving.”

If you would like to support Niall in his challenge you can go along to the QUB RAG coffee morning on Friday 28th March between 10am and 12pm in the Peter Froggatt Centre Foyer, Queen’s.
