Alistair, 11, walks tall with the Staggies for Maggie’s
squad yesterday as part of his prize. He also went on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Global Energy Stadium and was presented with a pair of signed gloves from goalkeeper Scott Fox.
This year’s event will take place on October 21, on the day that Ross County welcome Hamilton Academical to Dingwall in the league.
All participants will receive a free match day ticket. Jim McIntyre said: “I think it’s a fantastic achievement for an 11-yearold boy to raise £650 for Maggie’s. I took my players to Maggie’s Highlands in Inverness last season and we were blown away by the amazing work they do there to help people living with cancer, and their families.”
Mr McIntyre added that there were 170 participants last year but the aim is to “smash through the 300 barrier” and “at least double” the fundraising amount. Winger Michael Gardyne said Alistair told the players he will try to beat the amount he raised last year, and will challenge his pals to do the same.
Maggie’s offers free practical and emotional support for people living with cancer, and their family and friends.
