North East Fife MP pledges support for Runway Runaround at Leuchars runway
North East Fife MP Stephen Gethins has pledged to get his trainers on and take off in support of Maggie’s Fife’s newest fundraiser – Runway Run-Around – a 5 mile run or walk around the runway at Leuchars Army base on 20th October 2019.
Stephen Gethins MP, who has pledged to take part, said:
“Maggie’s is a fantastic charity and we are lucky in North East Fife to have support from both Maggie’s Fife and Maggie’s Dundee close at hand. The Runway Run-Around at Leuchars Station is a great idea which will raise vital funds for Maggie’s and allow its cancer caring centres to continue their great work. This will be a great event for all the family and I hope lots of people will sign up and enjoy the chance to run around the iconic Leuchars runway, while supporting Maggie’s at the same time.”
Lucky participants will gain behind the scenes access to this historical site, passing aircraft hangers, bunkers and crash walls, all whilst taking in the spectacular views of the east coast of Scotland.
To register visit www.maggiescentres.org/runwayrunaround £15 for adults and £10 for under 16’s and participants are asked to raise a minimum of £100.
Maggie’s Fife Centre Fundraising Manager, Tu Edwards, said:

Maggie’s Fife has experienced an increase in visitor numbers this year. There is a real need for our work. Events like this means we can strive to be there for everyone with cancer.”
