Blythe bangs the drum for Cancer Research UK
ScottishPower's ultimate '˜Power Squad' too part in Cancer Research UK's Race for Life Pretty Muddy event on September 9 at Pollok Park.
More than 150 employees and six ladies from the ScottishPower Pipe Band, joined two inspiring Scottish fitness influencers and personal trainers, Stefanie Moir and Iona Bruce, to take on the muddy obstacle course.
The Power Squad crossed the start line led by Stefanie, who shares fitness tips on her Instagram account @NaturallyStefanie to over 250,000 followers and Iona, who is the Scottish ambassador for the Girl Gains movement, which aims to empower and inspire women across the UK to life happier, healthier lives.
Also part of the Squad was Blythe Gerrie, a drummer in the ScottishPower pipe band who rallied fellow band members to take on the event to celebrate her turning 30.
Blythe, who lives in Shawlands, is originally from Toronto, Canada an has been in the pipe band for four years and is a Tenor Drummer.
She’s is passionate about raising money in the fight against cancer and Cancer Research UK is a charity close to her heart.
Speaking of her involvement in the event, she said: “Cancer has taken many people from my life far before their time, including my uncle who lost his fight with throat and mouth cancer earlier this year. I’m so excited to have the support of my Squad as I take part in Pretty Muddy in his memory and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 30th birthday.”
ScottishPower has been a partner of Cancer Research UK since 2012 and in that time has raised over £18 million for the charity, and it’s not stopping there!
Earlier this year, it was announced the partnership has been extended until 2021, giving ScottishPower the opportunity to raise even more to help beat cancer sooner
