CANCER Support Scotland have launched a campaign to encourage southsiders to take part in the Women’s 10k.

Fronting the drive is 22-year-old Amy Ticknell, from Strathbungo, who will be raising money for the charity at the Bellahouston park event on May 13.

Amy commented: “I’m feeling slightly apprehensive about the race because I’m not an experienced runner, but I’m willing to rise to the challenge for such a worthwhile cause.

“Having the whole Cancer Support Scotland team there on the day to cheer me on will also be a great motivating factor”.

Every woman who signs up to run for the charity, based in Gartnavel hospital, will receive a free runners’ pack, including a t-shirt and hints and tips for fundraising.

All sponsorship money raised will be used to support people living with cancer and their friends and family.
