THE brother of a former St Columba's High School pupil who died in his sleep will take on an obstacle race in his memory.

Gregor Scott, who was studying at Perth College, was tragically found dead by his flatmates at just 18-years-old on the morning of November 30 last year.

Since his older brother Cameron, aged 20, signed up to complete the 25km Spartan Race to fundraise in his memory, 18 other friends have decided to join him – a tribute to the kind-hearted young man Gregor was.

Cameron told the Press: "I just created a Gofundme page a couple of days ago and we've already got over £1,000. It's also been shared over 400 times on Facebook!

"I'm just overwhelmed by the support.

"I've done the race myself a couple of times with a friend and so we planned to do the same thing.

"It seems perfect because it's in the heart of Perth where Gregor went to university.

"But it's now grown into quite a crowd from flatmates, friends in uni to rugby team-mates.

"We've designed T-shirts and the proceeds will be going to Child Bereavement UK."

Gregor's death was treated as “unexplained”. He had just begun his studies in hospitality a couple of months before his death.

He worked at M&S part-time and was mad about rugby.

The prefect pupil was described as a "kind and loving young man" by headteacher of St Columba's Kevin O'Connor.

Cameron continued: "The Spartan Race is quite tough – in the past there has been spear-throwing and fire-jumping!

"It is really fun but it's all new to the others who are joining.

"I know what I'm in for, it's going to be hard, but we're all doing it for the cause of Gregor.

"Everyone has different levels of fitness but they were so willing to get on board.

"Nothing will ever change their minds and that really touches me.

"The reason I designed the T-shirt though is if anyone is struggling they'll be able to look up at their team-mates and see Gregor's face."

Child Bereavement UK is a charity that supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.

"I miss Gregor every single day," Cameron added. "I feel like I'm living two lives now, one for my brother too, and so I often think through the day what would he do as an act of kindness.

"There were various groups that helped us all out but I cannot believe how strong my family are.

"My mum is the strongest woman I know and likewise for my dad.

"How they are dealing with everything and coming to terms with it just amazes me.

"I'm having to do some resits at the moment because I took a few months out of uni at the time.

"But every day we take it as it comes and we know Gregor is going to be there for us every day."
