Maggie Cancer Centre Aberdeen

We are really thrilled to be supporting four of our Peterhead Jogscotland girls Sheila Murray, Dawn-anne Beattie, Angela Hastie and Liz McIntosh who will be taking part in the Inverness Half Marathon on Sunday 13th March in aid Maggie's Cancer Centre in Aberdeen. Sheila brother died 20 yrs ago on the 10th March and she is running the Half Marathon in memory of him, and Sheila friends and fellow Jogscotland members Dawn-anne, Angela and Liz have all lost someone close to them through cancer so they decided to train with her and do the half marathon to show support for this wonder charity, and to Sheila at the same time. Every Sunday for months now Sheila, Dawn-anne, Angela and Liz have been training for the Half Marathon, and we know there hard work will pay off. The main campaign to raise money for Maggie's is a partnership between Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, the Press and Journal and the Elizabeth Montgomerie Foundation, which was set up in memory of Colin Montgomerie's mother, who died from lung cancer in 1991. Read more here Next Wednesday 9th March from approximately 7pm in the Peterhead Football Club upstairs we are having a special Coffee/Tea and Fine pieces in aid of Maggies Cancer Centre to show support to all our girls. Please come along (even if your not a member) and show support to them by making a donation for this great cause. Next Wednesday night Peterhead Jogscotland will also be making a donation of behalf of all our members to this great cause. If would like to sponsor Sheila, Dawn-anne, Angela and Liz why not visit one of their just giving websites
