Take on The Miles for Maggie’s Challenge to support people living with cancer

Published

19th June 2020

This month, cancer charity Maggie’s Dundee is encouraging people to walk, run or cycle the equivalent distance between our centres in Scotland and make sure we can support people with cancer.

As more people live longer with cancer, charity Maggie’s Dundee is seeing an increasing need for practical and emotional support to help people cope with the changes that cancer brings. Maggie’s Dundee offers free support and advice on living well with cancer. This includes ensuring that people with cancer in Tayside are really listened to, that they are offered tailored individual support, group support and practical advice. All of which is delivered by qualified professionals in a comfortable setting that enables people to meet others who understand what it means to be living with cancer too.

Annie Long, Centre Fundraising Manager said: “I am delighted to take part in the Miles for Maggie’s challenge and am fundraising to make sure that Maggie’s Dundee is able to continue to support people living with cancer locally. Miles for Maggie’s is a great way to stay active and you can take part virtually with friends, to stay connected even if you may not be able to see them.”

All of the money raised through the Miles for Maggie’s challenge will make sure Maggie’s Dundee can continue to provide free, professional support to all those living with cancer who need it, as well as their family and friends.
