CANCER-BEATING Margaret Kerr, pictured left, from Clovenfords will raise cash for a leading charity when she takes part in the Great Scottish Run in Glasgow on September 4.

She is part of Professor Mike Dixon’s team, Mike Marvels, running for Breakthrough Breast Cancer in Scotland.

She has twice been diagnosed with the disease and has been treated by the professor for more than 20 years. Margaret will be joined by neighbour Lynne Mackay, pictured right, who has been an active fundraiser after losing both her father and mother to cancer. Margaret told us: “I don’t think I would be here today if it had not been for Mike. This is a great way to show my support and say thanks. This is my first run, so it will be hard work, but well worth it to raise money for life-saving research.
